The long term goal of our laboratory is to identify novel therapeutic targets for triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC), which lacks estrogen receptor, progesterone receptor, and HER2. To reach this goal, we are studying: 1)  molecular determinants of TNBC therapy resistance, and 2) contributions of adipose stem cells to TNBC initiation/ progression.
