Faculty Spotlight: Dr. Edward Prochownik

Dr. Prochownik’s laboratory research is focused on two major areas concerning the c-Myc (Myc) oncoprotein: the role of Myc in promoting metabolic reprogramming, and identification and characterization of small molecule Myc inhibitors. His group is also using mouse models to study hepatocellular carcinoma and hepatoblastoma.
