“I am a fifth-year graduate student. My thesis research focuses on how intermediate filament protein CK5 functionally regulates a cancer stem cell population in ER+ breast cancer. My short-term career goal is to obtain a postdoc position. I am interested in studying how cell-cell communication contributes to invasion and metastasis in breast cancer. My long-term goal is to become an independent investigator in the field of breast cancer research.”
