His lab integrates chemical and cell biological approaches to develop new inhibitors that may lead to new treatments for cancer. In medical education, Dr. King currently serves as the course director for Foundations, the first basic science course in the Pathways curriculum, which integrates science teaching across ten different disciplines. He also co-directs an Advanced Integrated Science Course in Cancer Biology in the post-clerkship phase of the Pathways curriculum.
