The Goal 

is to develop an in depth understanding of
mechanisms and consequences of altered growth factor availability and signaling . Emphasis is laid on cellular and molecular mechanisms of tumor progression and metastasis. Our approach is cross-disciplinary interfacing with biochemistry, molecular cell biology and tumor metastasis models. Our overall mission is to discover innovative avenues for developing therapeutics 

Current and prior research funded by: NCI and NIGMS (NIH),  OCRFA,  Rivkin Center for Ovarian Cancer,  American Cancer Society, and  the University of South Carolina.
