Mechano-Oncology Lab


We are a research group interested in studying the underlying mechanisms of how mechanobiology plays a role in cancer progression. Particularly, we are interested in biochemical and mechanical cues from tumor microenvironment that alter mechanical properties of cancer and stromal cells and ultimately change cancer cell behavior including migration and drug responses. By identifying molecular mediators that promote cancer cell survival and motility, we aim to develop novel anti-cancer treatment strategies.
