Recent work by his team has led to the discovery of how Ub signaling might regulate autophagy and tumor suppression through controlling the formation of autophagy receptor complex (Liu et al 2014 Cancer Cell), how direct regulation of p53 signaling by iron metabolism might contribute to tumorigenesis and tumor responses to iron-deprivation-based chemotherapy (Shen et al 2014 Cell Reports), and development of a systems biology tool to quantitatively profile protein degradation at proteome level (Yu et al 2014 Cell Research).

Vitaly Margulis, M.D., believes in working smarter, not harder, and he applies that philosophy to cancer care. An Assistant Professor of Urology at UT Southwestern Medical Center. Dr. Margulis uses robotics, laparoscopy, focal therapy, and open surgical techniques to treat soft-tissue tumors and kidney, prostate, bladder, testicular, penile, and adrenal cancers. His primary interest, however, is kidney cancer, and he is studying the genetic changes of the disease, what causes it to spread, and how to stop it. Dr. Margulis considers himself a shepherd who merely guides and gives medical advice. Patients, he says, have the most important role on his team. He believes they respond better to treatment when they are part of the equation. He also treats each patient as an individual and views his or her cancer as a separate entity. My research focus, during the two years of dedicated basic science training, was on understanding the molecular biology of renal cell carcinogenesis and progression as a model for developing novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for this disease.
