The Rafat Lab works at the interface of engineering and cancer biology. We examine the biological, chemical, and physical cues that influence cancer metastasis and recurrence. Current studies focus on the effect of radiation and surgery on tumor and immune cell migration dynamics, the molecular profiles of tissues wounded from therapy, and the biomechanical properties of tissues following therapy.
