About the Kang Lab: The Kang lab has focused on how disruption of molecular communication networks leads to cancer, with a particular focus on the role of cellular kinase signaling and metabolic reprogramming in tumor metastasis and chemotherapy resistance. Based on this knowledge, the Kang lab evaluates novel therapeutic targets by developing and characterizing specific small molecule inhibitors in preclinical treatment of human cancers.

Members of the lab selected for the Lab Safety Spotlight will receive a pizza party sponsored by EHSO.

Thank you to all the labs and team members for being proactive and embracing a culture of safety.

Ways members of research labs can embrace a culture of safety:

• Maintain your EHSO training to keep it up-to-date
• Know the biological, chemical properties, or characteristics of the materials that you are using in research
• Use your PPE according to the lab-specific PPE Assessment
• Review the safety and lab-specific SOPs before commencing work
• Clean after you have finished your work
• Know how to respond to and report an incident or accident
