Tae’s research explores the dynamics of cell signaling pathways involved in induction or production of leukemias. Specifically, she will be analyzing biological assays and real-time reverse transcriptase PCR to investigate how cellular transcription factor CREB-inhibiting small molecules can be utilized in an effective, less toxic therapy for Acute Myeloid Leukemia.
