About the ARTG

The Advanced Research on Transcription Factors Group (ARTG) is an academic-based research laboratory located on the second floor of the Katz Building for Pharmacy and Health Research, at the heart of the north campus of the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Canada. 

The long-term goal of our research program is to understand the chemical features required of drug molecules to bind to (and inhibit) the transcriptional activity of oncogenic proteins, especially the ones in the forehead box (FOX) family of proteins. For the last four years, we have been focusing our efforts on targeting the FOXM1 protein, which is overexpressed in most (if not all) types of human cancers.

On this website, you will find the most updated information about our current research program, funding sources, publications, past & current members, and more.

Contact us if you have any questions about our medicinal chemistry projects. We are always open to teaching or research collaboration.
