My laboratory focuses on the study of lymphatic metastasis with special interest in the molecular mediators of lodgment and growth of tumor cells within the lymph node microenvironment.  Furthermore, we are interested in understanding the impact these interactions have towards promoting tumor tolerance by the immune system.  To these ends, we apply functional genetic screening, biophysical, and biochemical techniques to the study of this novel biology.
