Areas of Interest
The David M. Lubman Research Lab is involved in developing novel biotechnologies to solve difficult biological problems. The focus of the work has been in the field of Proteomics and Cancer Research. Proteomics involves the study of the protein expression of a cell, where proteins are the entities that perform the functions of the cell. Dr. David M. Lubman's work has involved developing methods to profile large numbers of proteins expressed by cancer cells and to understand how these proteins are different than those observed from normal cells. Proteins that are modified or overexpressed in cancer cells often result in new protein pathways that lead to tumorogenesis and metastasis of the cancer.
