Scientific Areas of Expertise: Actin Cytoskeletal Function and Dynamics; Cancer Cell Biology and Metastasis; Mechanical Stress Responses

For instrumental research aimed at defining novel molecular pathways responsible for regulating cellular migration, invasion, and metastasis, including her discovery of proteins that orchestrate actin-cytoskeleton and cell-substratum adhesion dynamics as well as others that signal from the cell surface to the nucleus to facilitate the invasion and metastatic spread of primary cancers, namely, Ewing sarcoma.
