Abstract:

The projects in this proposal specifically target several signal transduction pathways known to be critical for NSCLC pathogenesis including the EGFR pathway and the more downstream rasrafMekERK pathway. These projects combine targeted approaches using molecular and imaging techniques to validate activity against a target and monitor response using imaging modalities specific to the receptor using either small mole3cules or targeted peptide approaches.
