My research is to understand the molecular mechanisms of cell adhesion and human tumor metastasis. We discovered cell adhesion adaptive responses of tumors dependent upon adhesion receptors called integrins. The adaptive responses are essential for normal tissue development but are used for nepharious purposes in cancer. We use tools of biochemistry, cell biology and genetics.
