Dr. Oh presented her work at the Annual Pathology Research Day hosted by the Department of Pathology at the University of New Mexico.
Mijung discovered that cellular mechanotypes of breast cancer cells, such as deformability and contractility, are altered by different extracellular glucose levels. Such changes in mechanotype are mediated through F-actin remodeling and actomyosin contractility and ultimately affect cell motility. More details will be available when the manuscript is published. Stay tuned!
