Research Interests

Dr. St. Clair's laboratory is investigating the fundamental mechanisms by which reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) contribute to normal tissue injury and cancer formation. The ultimate goal is to develop novel strategies for intervention and improvement of treatment. Several separate, but related areas of research are in progress.

  1. Transcriptional regulation of the human MnSOD gene expression
  2. Redox-mediated mechanisms of tumor suppression
  3. Antioxidant protective mechanisms against cardiac and neuronal injury.
