The Bullman Lab focuses firstly on understanding the translational impact of the tumor microbiota in human cancers, and secondly on the delineation of specific mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of microbe-associated human cancers. They combine molecular microbiology, computational biology, biochemistry, and genetics to understand host-microbial interactions within the tumor microenvironment. Through such efforts, her lab seeks to make discoveries that have both a scientific and clinical impact in the emerging area of bacterial-associated malignancies. Bacterial agents that have a role in cancer initiation or progression provide a viable route for prevention and treatment of these cancers.

Age is the most common risk factor for prostate cancer, with the rapid rise in its incidence after age 50. As a member of the prostate cancer research group in Division of Gerontology and Geriatric Medicine, Dr. Uo is focused on understanding molecular logics behind adaptive resistance of prostate cancer cells to the most forefront androgen-targeted therapies. Specifically, his research program examines the cell autonomous and nonautonomous mechanisms that enable prostate cancer progression, including the constitutively-active isoforms of androgen receptor, the metabolic rewiring, and the extracellular fuel supply from tumor microenvironment and adipose tissues. He harnesses in-depth knowledge and advanced technologies of molecular, cellular, chemical, synthetic, and computational biology to help develop next-generation of therapeutics to improve patient survival.
