Areas of Expertise: Quantitative proteomics; Phosphoproteomics

Research: Scott Gerber's research involves developing and applying quantitative phosphoproteomics methods to identify and understand cellular signals that contribute to the development and/or maintenance of cancer. Scott is particularly interested in studying the relationship between the frequency of overexpression of Aurora kinase A in human lung cancers and their pathological and clinical outcomes. Aurora kinase A is a critical regulator of many functions in a normal mitosis, but is also an oncogene, and so understanding the nature of this essential homeostasis is an important topic of research in the Gerber Lab. Current research efforts also include determining downstream targets of Aurora A and screening for their involvement in mitotic defects that are characteristic of human lung cancer.
