Our laboratory studies the anti-cancer effects of natural products (ie, ginseng, devil’s club), their extracts, and active constituents (ie, ginsenosides) on human breast and prostate cancers. In vitro cell culture systems as well as in vivo animal models are utilized to determine the effects of these compounds on cell proliferation and tumor growth and determine mechanisms of action using many different laboratory techniques. Our lab has a secondary interest in cannabinoids and their effects on the neuroendocrine system, feeding behavior and reproduction in cell and animal models.
