Fighting Cancers: We have won battles, Can we win the War?


Upon completion of his doctorate in cell biology and neuroscience at Emory University School of Medicine, Dr. Qun Lu pursued a research fellowship at Harvard Medical School as well as at the affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he was promoted to Instructor in Medicine (Division of Neurology) in 1997. His research led to the discovery of the roles of mitogen-activated protein kinase in balancing cell-cell versus cell-matrix interactions (Lu et al., 1998), followed by the cloning of full length human -catenin/CTNND2 and the identification of its interactions with cell-cell junction (Lu et al., 1999).
