Paraptosis: a Newer Approach to Target Cancer

The focus of the project is to screen molecules with anti-cancer properties and understand their mode of action with respect to cell death. Many cancer cells are apoptosis resistant; we are trying to target them by an alternative cell death pathway known as “paraptosis” or cytoplasmic vacuolation mediated cell death.
