The Raychaudhuri is interested in the cell cycle regulators (both positive and negative) that are involved in oncogenesis and tumor suppression. Currently, they are studying the roles of the cell cycle transcription factor FoxM1 in tumor development and tumor metastasis. Also, they are studying DDB2, which was identified as a DNA repair protein, to investigate how it participates in the pathways of DNA damage response and premature senescence.
