Personal profile

Research Interests

The lab of Dr. Marcus E. Peter studies various forms of cell death including apoptosis, which is a fundamental process to regulate homeostasis of all tissues and to eliminate unwanted cells specifically in the immune system. Another interest lies in the study of RNA interference and based on toxic RNAs to development a novel form of cancer treatment. The laboratory is located within the Robert H. Lurie Cancer Center at Northwestern University.
