Alterations in tumor cell metabolism are one of the most fundamental aspects of cancer. We have developed a cutting edge technology for mapping metabolic activity within cells and are applying technique to a variety of cancer models. Ultimately, we aim to inhibit specific metabolic pathways and prevent specific functions of tumor cells, including proliferation, invasion and metastasis.
