The Bratton lab studies apoptosis (programmed cell death) and autophagy (self-cannibalism). Defective apoptosis is a hallmark of cancer and a major cause of resistance during cancer therapy. Autophagy, on the other hand, can play important roles in either suppressing or promoting cancer, depending upon the cellular and microenvironmental context.
