Research Focus

We investigate fundamental molecular events underlying the development and maintenance of cancer metastasis, with a particular emphasis on circulating tumor cells. We use a combination of molecular biology, microfluidic devices, single cell resolution next-generation sequencing, patient samples, in vivo models, and computational analysis to dissect vulnerabilities of metastatic cancers.
