Editor-in-Chief: Professor Bal L. Lokeshwar

The overall philosophy of Dr. Lokeshwar’s  research is to understand the mechanism of cancer progression and enhancing existing system of therapy. Current focus of his laboratory is on understanding and control of the metastatic progression of prostate cancer, the stage of the disease currently incurable. The projects at hand include investigating the role of enzymes and biological factors that contribute to chronic inflammation and accelerate the progression of the localized disease. In this line of research he is investigating the potential use of herbal products that show promising results in laboratory models, and small molecule inhibitors of inflammation that also reduce the severity of cancer metastasis. In addition, other projects include development of new markers for kidney cancers that may help us non-invasively identify aggressive kidney cancers.
