Nada Y. Kalaany, Ph.D.

Profile Picture

The broad interest of our lab is to define the role of systemic metabolism in cancer initiation and progression using a combination of cell biology, in vivo models, genetics and metabolic approaches. Our studies are focused on identifying metabolic vulnerabilities in cancers growing under distinct systemic metabolic states, and investigate the metabolic cross-talk between tumors and their hosts.

    Effect of anatomical location on pancreatic cancer metabolic behavior
    Role Description: Determine the role of anatomical location in metabolic behavior of KRAS-driven pancreatic vs. lung tumors.
    Role: Principal Invesitigator
  2. R01CA270110 (KALAANY, NADA Y.) Apr 1, 2022 - Mar 31, 2027
    Role of Altered Nutrient Metabolism in Pancreatic Cancer
    Role: Principal Investigator
  3. R01CA211944 (KALAANY, NADA Y.) Jun 1, 2017 - May 31, 2022
    Role of Insulin Receptor Substrates in Kras-driven lung cancer
    Role Description: The major goals of this project are to identify novel metabolic dependencies that pancreatic tumors but not normal tissues rely on, including the unconventional path for synthesis of the nitrogen-enriched metabolites -polyamines- that are essential for cellular growth.
    Role: Principal Investigator

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
