Dr. Eisenman studies how cell proliferation, growth, and differentiation are regulated through the actions of transcriptional networks, and how this regulation is subverted during tumor progression. Specifically, his laboratory research focuses on gaining a deeper understanding of the mechanisms of an oncogenic transcription factor network (Myc/Max/Mxd) which is fundamental in all cancers.
