This collection showcases the journal articles and other publications authored by researchers in the Roger Davis Lab in the Program in Molecular Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. The cJun NH2-terminal kinase (JNK) signal transduction pathway is implicated in several stress-related disease processes including cancer, diabetes, inflammation, and stroke. Our hope is that drugs targeting the JNK pathway may be useful for the treatment of these diseases. The goal of this laboratory is to understand the molecular processes that are engaged by JNK in both health and disease.
