Recipient of NIH F31 National Cancer Institute, National Research Service Award (NRSA), "The activity and molecular interactions of extracellular EMMPRIN"
My research focuses on studying several of the primary mechanisms that underlay cancer progression with a particular emphasis on pancreatic cancer. I utilize combinations of biophysical, biochemical and cell-based techniques to assess the interactions and activities of two of the major proteins implicated in tumorigenesis and metastasis, which are Cyclophilin A (CypA) and the glycoprotein EMMPRIN (Extracellular Matrix Metalloproteinase).
