Brief description Cell death is essential for normal development and deregulated cell death results in many diseases. We have recently discovered a potentially novel mechanism of developmental cell death that involves autophagy (a type of self-degradation). Our studies will now examine the mechanism of autophagic cell death and study how cell growth regulation is integrated in this pathway. This will provide us important knowledge into the complex role of autophagy in cancer.
