    Many cancers are life-threatening diseases and there is an urgent need for novel therapeutic strategies. Our group works on the human MYC protein family, which is involved in the development of the majority of all human cancers. Our aim is both to understand the function of MYC proteins and explore new strategies to inhibit their function.
