Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

The focus of the research program are clinical trials in breast cancer. Clinical trials aim to investigate treatments for women with breast cancer who are newly diagnosed or have had a recurrence of breast cancer. Trials include participation in the national breast cancer study groups, ECOG and NSABP, as well as the development of new chemotherapy programs. Of particular interest are adjuvant therapy, treatment of metastatic disease, methods for treatment of locally advanced breast cancer and inflammatory breast cancer. Laboratory work has centered on the mechanisms of how cells acquire specific fates during growth and development , providing insights into normal and abnormal mechanisms of growth control.
