Dr. Fu studies the signals that travel between and within cells, including cancer cells.  He  hopes to use this knowledge to develop novel drugs that can interfere with the abnormal signals being sent/received by cancer cells.  His background in pharmacology gives him a great insight into what types of agents can actually work as drugs in humans.
