Damon Runyon Researchers

Meet Our Scientists
Justin A. Bosch, PhD

Dr. Bosch is studying the molecular language of cell-cell communication, an essential function of animal cells that coordinates normal tissue development and function that is frequently misregulated in many cancers. By developing novel methods to study the biological functions of an extraordinary class of intercellular messages-those that transfer directly into the interior of recipient cells-he will gain new insight into fundamental modes of cell-cell communication. His research will improve our understanding of the molecular events leading to cancer progression, leading to development of improved methods to deliver drugs into cells.
