Nikola Pavletich is interested in understanding the maintenance of genomic integrity and the control of cell growth, two processes central to cancer. His research has focused on the structures and mechanisms of proteins that sense, signal, and repair DNA damage and on the cell cycle and associated growth regulatory pathways.
Dr. Pavletich is also a member and chair of the Structural Biology Program at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. He received his B.S. degree in chemistry from the California Institute of Technology, and his Ph.D. degree in molecular biology and genetics from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His postdoctoral training was with Carl Pabo at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
