Dr. Sood's research passion is to understand the biological mechanisms by which chronic stress and related pathways can influence cancer growth and progression.
In the current research project, Dr. Sood and his team are elucidating the effects of sympathetic mediators on various cancer biological processes. Specifically, they have learned that dopamine levels are substantially reduced under chronic stress conditions, and dopamine agonists might be effective in blocking the deleterious effects of chronic stress on cancer growth. Additional work is ongoing.
There are many contributions emanating from their work, including gaining a mechanistic understanding of stress effects and providing translational avenues for blocking the effects of stress biology, which could be of value to biobehavioral sciences and cancer patients.
