There is a strong correlation between solid tumor progression and poor patient survival. Many signaling pathways and molecular/cellular mechanisms that control normal tissue homeostasis are dysregulated in cancer. Our group aims to identify and understand factors that regulate cancer metastasis and therapy resistance, and whether these factors may also control tissue repair.
