Patrick Viatour, PharmD, PhD

Resident Faculty
Associate Professor

Dr. Viatour is interested in the mechanisms that govern cell division during episodes of rapid cellular proliferation. In particular, his laboratory develops a unifying theory regarding the role of the transcription factor E2f in pathological contexts such as cancer and inflammatory reactions. His long-term goal is to identify novel therapeutic strategies to harness proliferation and limit the accumulation of pathological cell populations, such as tumorigenic and pro-inflammatory cells.
