RESEARCH

Our research program aims to understand and harness the tumor microenvironment to study and treat triple negative breast cancer and glioblastoma. We design and use 3D tissue engineered models based on patients' cancers and validate our work in vivo. Our primary questions in cancer include the role of tissue drainage and the tumor stroma in cancer progression and therapeutic response. We collaborate extensively with the School of Medicine to make our research translational and applicable to patients with cancer.
