Our research is designed to deconvolve cancer’s complexity and to understand the interaction of mechanical forces and chemical cues in cancer metastasis. We are pursuing experimental and theoretical approaches, derived from the physical sciences, to address major questions and barriers in our understanding and treatment of cancer.  This innovative approach is unlike any prior studies on the tumor environment and will enable a fundamental level of understanding that will yield new pathways to intervene in the progression of cancer.
