Alexander Muller, PhD

Associate Professor

Dr. Alexander Muller's laboratory is exploring fundamental molecular and genetic interactions that exist between tumors and the host environment as the basis for developing novel approaches for achieving effective therapeutic intervention. In one project, Dr. Muller is investigating a key mechanism that facilitates tumor outgrowth by redirecting the immune system to ignore or even support cancer development rather than acting to suppress it. In a second project, Dr. Muller is investigating the genetic basis for how the normal growth of stem cells can go awry, leading them to become cancerous. Dr. Muller’s research is also uncovering new ways to limit the danger of cancer formation within the therapeutic context of future stem cell therapies.  More
