Personal profile


I have been studying mechanisms of metastasis in breast cancer for 20 years. I have studied both human and mouse mammary cell lines using biochemical and immunohistochemical detection of cell surface attachment factors. I like to involve undergraduate students in research as much as possible. Current research involves studying the change in thrombotic and thrombolytic factors in human plasma with age and by season.
