We are interested in the mechanisms that support tissue homeostasis and cancer metastasis. Focusing on TGFβ as one of the most prevalent signaling pathways in metazoan biology, we are establishing how TGFβ signals control pluripotency and differentiation in stem cells, and homeostasis in mature cells. In addition, we are interested in the genes and pathways that drive metastasis. Ultimately, our goal is to use this basic knowledge to develop innovative cancer treatments.
