Welcome to the Potts lab! We are researchers interested in understanding the biochemical and molecular mechanisms behind fundamental cellular processes that when deregulated result in cancer. We are currently investigating the function of the large (>50) MAGE protein family in several cellular signaling events and how these proteins contribution to tumorigenesis. We utilize a number of approaches to answer these questions, including biochemistry, cell biology, proteomics, and structural biology. Please explore our website to learn more about our published work, current projects, and lab members. Please contact us if you have further questions or are interested in joining our group.
