Chemical Carcinogenesis Research

Bongsup Cho, Ph.D.

Located in Lab Module 450 on Level 4 of the Pharmacy building

My research area is in chemical carcinogenesis with a major emphasis on the structural and synthetic aspects of DNA-adduct formation. Aromatic amine and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are present in environment, thereby posing a threat to human health. I am particularly interested in how environmental carcinogens, upon metabolism, interact with cellular DNA and initiate mutagenesis/carcinogenesis. The long-range goal of my research is to elucidate the mechanisms of mutation and repair at the molecular-genetic level using various spectroscopic and molecular biological methods.

Join the fight against cancer

Grilling season is in full swing, and the age-old question hangs in the air:  Would you like a side of carcinogenic heterocyclic amines with your porterhouse?  That black stuff you love so much on your grilled meat is nearly as bad as eating soot from your fireplace and can actually be hazardous to your health. […]

URI researchers ask, ‘Is your health at steak?’ KINGSTON, R.I. – Nothing goes better with your Fourth of July fireworks than a backyard barbecue. But if you’re not careful, your grilled meats could be a health hazard. According to two URI scientists, the charring on your steaks and burgers are heterocyclic amines or, if you’ve […]

Discovering the Configuration of Cancer

Dr Bongsup Cho offers an insight into his current research into environmentally-induced cancer, which will expose how aromatic amines mutate DNA and interfere with its repair mechanisms. Could you briefly describe your current research project? Formation of aromatic amine-DNA adducts is believed to initiate cancer. We are concerned with elucidating the mechanisms by which amine-DNA […]
