Targeting the kinome in glioblastomas

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is an aggressive brain tumor for which current therapeutic approaches are limited.  Dr. Morin and his research team focus on the identification of hyperactivated signaling pathways involved in the biogenesis and development of GBMs and which could serve as sites for targeted therapeutic intervention.  Differentially regulated protein kinases, key mediators of signal transduction and druggable targets, are characterized in primary GBM tumours and cell lines.

Involvement with BHCRI to date:

Dr. Morin is a BHCRI Associate Member.
