Invasive lobular carcinoma.jpg

Our research is primarily focused on studying the cellular and molecular mechanisms of hormone independence and therapeutic resistance in breast cancer; we are particularly interested in the pathogenesis of invasive lobular breast carcinoma. A new research direction for our group is the study of the interaction(s) between exposure to the endocrine disruptor Bisphenol A (BPA) and obesity in affecting the risk of developing insulin resistance and breast cancer in animal models.
