My laboratory’s focus is to study the physiology of Glioblastoma stem cells (GSCs) in parallel with neural stem cells (NSCs). In particular, we are interested in understanding the origin of GSCs and elucidating the mechanisms for tumor heterogeneity. This eventually will enable us to discover critical therapeutic targets and develop novel targeted therapies.

The other focus of the laboratory is to understand the mechanisms of brain metastasis from lung and breast cancers. In particular, we are looking to elucidate the interaction between cancer cells and neurons, and how this interaction promotes brain metastasis.
