Research Interests

  • Our laboratory utilizes novel 3D cell-based assays to study tissue mechanical properties, their molecular determinants, and their role in specifying spatial positions between cells during embryonic development and malignant invasion. Our most current projects explore how the extracellular matrix can be pharmacologically induced to discourage the detachment and dispersal of Glioblastoma cells.
