Biography
Research in the Daaka lab focuses on understanding the biological roles of G protein-coupled and androgen receptors that instruct embryonic development and continue to function in adulthood. He has been involved in crucial discoveries that unraveled the contribution of these receptors to human pathophysiologic processes; for example, in the initiation and progression of cancer. Research from the Daaka lab on the function of these receptor systems has contributed to their recognition as targets for cancer therapy, and over the last decade, several anti-cancer drugs have been developed against these molecules.
