RESEARCH PROJECT

I am investigating the role of the adaptor protein ShcA in mediating the cooperation between the ErbB2 and TGFβ signaling pathways in breast cancer. I am currently determining which functional domains of ShcA are required to mediate TGFβ induced focal adhesion formation, migration and invasion in ErbB2 expressing breast cancer cells in vitro as well as tumor growth and metastasis in vivo.

BACKGROUND

I completed my undergraduate studies in Honours Biochemistry at McGill University in 2005. I have been a happy member of the Siegel lab as a PhD student in Biochemistry since then.
