Research Interests

My project seeks to characterize a novel variant of the estrogen receptor alpha protein. Based on previous knowledge of estrogen receptor alpha function, this variant may contribute to breast cancer susceptibility, development, progression, and/or drug resistance. I have developed model cell lines in order to study the variant in vitro and will also be investigating the clinical prevalence of the variant.
