    Research Areas:
    Metastasis is a step in advanced cancer development that is lethal as cancer cells often spread to bone. The current understanding of the regulatory mechanisms of bone metastasis is still not clear. Pratap is investigating cellular and molecular events during bone and cancer cell interactions that influence cancer cell survival during metastases. His team combines genetics, molecular, biochemical and cell biological approaches to address two aspects of bone metastasis: growth factor signaling and cancer cell metabolism.
