Exploring cell death and RNA interference to develop novel forms of cancer treatment.


The Peter Lab

The lab of Marcus E. Peter, PhD, studies various forms of cell death including apoptosis, which is a fundamental process to regulate homeostasis of all tissues and to eliminate unwanted cells specifically in the immune system. Another interest lies in the study of RNA interference and based on toxic RNAs to development a novel form of cancer treatment. The laboratory is located within the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University.
