My laboratory investigates the mechanisms of cell migration and how they contribute to cancer metastasis. The work is particularly focused on the dynamic regulation of cell-cell adhesion in metastatic cells. Our basic, mechanistic questions are directly intertwined with clinical discovery of cancer mechanisms that control patient outcome.
