Dr. Iritani's lab is studying the Myc oncogene family, Myc proteins are deregulated in many types of cancers including breast, brain, colon cancers, and most leukemias and lymphomas. He is interested in understanding how these proteins normally function in the development and proliferation of lymphocytes, and how these functions are altered during oncogenic activation. Utilizing cDNA microarray technology, his lab has identified sets of genes that are regulated by Myc in primary lymphocytes both before and after transformation.
