RESEARCH PROJECT

Characterizing GPNMB-induced breast cancer invasion, tumor formation and metastasis.

BACKGROUND

After completing my undergrad at the University of Toronto, I joined the Siegel lab in 2009 as a PhD student in Experimental Medicine. Before my arrival, the lab has shown that GPNMB is overexpressed in triple-negative breast cancers and that its overexpression correlates with a poor prognosis for this aggressive subset of the disease. Additionally, GPNMB has been shown to drive breast cancer tumor formation and metastasis. I am currently working on elucidating mechanisms by which GPNMB promotes these effects.
