Research Interest

Dr. Abell and I study epithelial to mesenchymal transition or EMT. EMT is the gradual process by witch cells lose epithelial phenotype and gain mesenchymal phenotype, as in early development or in matastasis of cancer cells. We hope to identify important regulatory molecules involved in EMT.
