Carla VanDenBerg’s research interests include receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) convey pro-tumorigenic responses in breast, colon, lung and prostate cancer. Her lab focuses on a group of proteins known as JNK (c-Jun N-terminal Kinases) which are activated by receptor tyrosine kinases in breast cancer models. Ultimately, VanDenBerg and her team hope to evaluate if JNK can be therapeutically targeted to treat breast cancer patients.
