About Us

We are interested in understanding how integrins contribute to cancer cell migration, invasion, tumor-stroma crosstalk, and other processes that promote cancer progression. Current projects in the lab focus on finding novel regulators of integrin activity, understanding the endo/exosomal traffic of integrins, and how cancer cells sense their microenvironment, where biophysical cues from the stroma determine cancer cell fate.
