Research Interests

We are interested in the study of cancer stem cells (CSCs), a subset of cells within a tumor that is important in the self-renewal and differentiation potential of the cancer. My project is focused on creating novel therapeutic strategies to help target pancreatic CSCs by identifying and targeting antigens that are important to and enriched in the CSC population. The goal of my project is to understand why these antigens are enriched in the CSCs, explore the pathways that they regulate, and help to develop therapeutic strategies that focuses on these pathways to eliminate the CSC population.
