Description

This research project involves synthesizing cyanostilbenes and testing their anticancer properties. The components of the cyanostilbene hybrids have all been shown to have anti-cancer properties on their own, and we would like to see if we can increase these properties by combining multiple into a single hybrid. Then these cyanostilbene compounds are tested on Her2+ human breast cancer cells. The goal is to assess whether or not the cyanostilbenes have any effect on breast cancer cells. This research is important since, regardless of the outcome, provides new findings on cancer research.
