I am the PI of the Cancer Initiation and Cancer Cell Behavior lab. Our research objective is to determine how cancer cells adapt and grow before cancer is diagnosed. Our lab is also part of the Center for Applied therapeutics where we share our models as tools for preclinical and translational research. To learn more about our research please visit the Cancer Initiation and Cancer Cell Behavior Lab's homepage.
