Pr. Brendan Bell’s research aims to identify the disruptions in the expression of genes in cancerous cells and in cells infected by HIV while the virus is still in a latent state.Pr. Bell’s starting point is the finding that a number of cancers are associated with alteration of the process that normally determines the programmed death of diseased cells.Pr. Bell’s overall goal is to understand and determine how cell death signals express themselves at the molecular level.
