Who We Are
We are a biomedical research team at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute and Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan.
Between 2001-2021, our group was continuously supported by a grant from the National Cancer Institute.
What We Do
We study the biology of normal mammary gland development and breast cancer. In addition, we examine the genetic alterations that drive pancreatic carcinogenesis.
We develop novel genetically engineered models to study biological processes in vivo.
