Research Synopsis

 The laboratory focuses on mechanisms and treatment of breast cancer using in vivo imaging, functional genomics and other approaches to study cellular and pathophysiologic processes influencing mammary tumor cell growth and dissemination. Of particular interest is the role of epithelial/mesencymal transition (EMT) in metastasis and stem cell biology. Other studies focus on cancer-induced immunosupression and its potential as a target for treatment of late stage cancer.
