Dr. Sumin Kang obtained her PhD in Biotechnology at Yonsei University in Korea 2005, and was trained as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Dr. Jing Chen's laboratory at the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University before she was promoted to Assistant Professor in 2009. Dr. Kang's research interest is centered on better understanding of the protein kinase signaling as well as metabolic reprogramming in tumorigenesis and tumor metastasis using translational and preclinical studies. Dr. Kang is supported with prestigious awards and grants including NIH R01, American Cancer Society Basic Research Scholar Award, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Special fellow Award, Georgia Cancer Coalition Cancer Research Award and Robbins Scholar Award.
Dr. Kang's laboratory focuses on phosphor-proteomics based studies to elucidate signaling mechanisms underlying protein kinase or metabolic enzyme-dependent oncogenesis and tumor metastasis; translational and preclinical studies using in vitro cell assays and in vivo mouse models of tumors and metastases to evaluate small molecule inhibitors to treat human cancers; and studies to elucidate the role of post-translational modifications of protein kinases and metabolic enzymes in pathogenesis and disease progression of human cancers including leukemia and solid tumors.
