Research Abstract

We are working to identify mechanisms that enable cancers to metastasize, but then lay dormant at distant sites, only to recur late after apparently curative treatment. We combine molecular and cell biology, imaging, bioengineering, and systems approaches to identify pathways that regulate cancer cell invasion, metastasis, and dormancy. We are also using advanced genomics, computation, and statistical data-mining to: 1) identify diagnostic, prognostic, and drug response genes across a spectrum of cancer types; and 2) discover molecular pathways in cancer and stem cells that regulate proliferation, invasion, differentiation, and resistance to therapeutics.
