Madhuri Wadehra, PhD
Dr. Madhuri Wadehra's research and discovery efforts are focused on two related themes in tumor biology: understanding the function of a tetraspan protein epithelial membrane protein-2 (EMP2) in tumor progression, and developing therapeutic and diagnostic agents that target tumors that overexpress EMP2.
Wadehra's team is currently investigating a promising marker in a number of cancers, the tetraspan protein EMP2. They have shown that EMP2 functions as an oncogene in many of these human cancers and that it is dysregulated in a number of tumors including those of the female reproductive system as well as primary CNS tumors.
