metabolic fate of new chemical compounds

The Cameron Laboratory works on a variety of independent and collaborative projects centered on the metabolic fate of new chemical compounds. We explore the role of drug metabolism in chemical induced toxicity and drug-drug interactions.

Our Research Focus


The research in the Cameron laboratory focuses on cytochrome P450 catalyzed metabolism.  Cytochrome P450 are best known as being the family of enzymes responsible for the breakdown of most pharmaceutical drugs. Additionally, P450 are important in key biological functions such as steroid and bile acid biosynthesis and oxidation of unsaturated lipids to numerous signaling molecules.
