  1. Mechanisms of AKT-dependent sensitivity to rapamycin
    Joseph F Gera; Fiscal Year: 2010
    ..The mechanisms of cell intrinsic resistance to these compounds will be investigated, as well as, the pre-clinical evaluation of combination targeted therapies in glioma in vitro and in vivo models. ..
  2. Mechanisms of AKT-dependent sensitivity to rapamycin
    Joseph Gera; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..The broad objective of this proposal is understand the molecular events which regulate AKT-dependent hypersensitivity of tumor cells to these agents. ..
  3. Regulation of c-myc translation by hnRNP A1: role in multiple myeloma tumor respo
    Joseph Gera; Fiscal Year: 2009
    ..This is an important pathway of progression of this malignancy in patients. It also elucidates how multiple myeloma tumor cells become resistant to promising new therapeutic agents called mTOR inhibitors. ..
