The topic of cell signaling is a field that studies how cells communicate to control basic activities and respond to their environment. When looking specifically at cancer cells, researchers can gain a better understanding of cancer on a cellular level, an understanding that may have implications for developing new treatments. The current volume provides an overview of the field and how various cell biology techniques are used to better understand cancer on a cellular level.

This easily accessible reference volume offers a comprehensive look at the field of cancer cell signaling. Edited by a researcher from Florida Atlantic University, Cancer Cell Signaling: Targeting Signaling Pathways Towards Therapeutic Approaches to Cancer is an authoritative and easy-to-use reference.

About the Authors / Editors:
Editor: Kasirajan Ayyanathan, PhD
Research Associate Professor, Center for Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, Florida

Kasirajan Ayyanathan, PhD, received his PhD degree from the Department of Biochemistry, Indian Institute of Science, one of the premier research institutions in India. Subsequently, at Temple University School of Medicine, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, he conducted post-doctoral research on the signal transduction by purinergic receptors, a class of G-Protein Coupled Receptors (GPCR), in erythroleukemia cancer cells. Next, he was trained as a staff scientist at the Wistar Institute, Philadelphia, for almost ten years and studied transcription regulation, chromatin, and epigenetic regulatory mechanisms in cancer before becoming an Associate Professor at Florida Atlantic University (FAU). He is a Research Associate Professor at the Center for Molecular Biology and Biotechnology. Presently, he is a visiting scholar at the Wistar Institute.

He is the recipient of Chern Memorial Award, presented by the Wistar Institute, and Howard Temin Career Research Award, presented by the National Cancer Institute, USA.Dr. Ayyanathan is well trained in molecular biology, cell biology, and biochemistry with main focus on studying transcription factors and gene regulation. He has contributed to several projects such as on the generation of conditional transcriptional repressors that are directed against the endogenous oncogenes to inhibit malignant growth, on the establishment of stable cell lines that express chromatin integrated transcriptional repressors and reporter genes in order to study the epigenetic mechanisms of KRAB repression, and on identification of novel SNAG repression domain interacting proteins in order to understand their roles in transcriptional repression and oncogenesis. Dr. Ayyanathan has published several research articles in peer-reviewed articles in these subject areas.
