Our lab investigates the mechanistic basis and physiologic consequences of metastasis, the cause of nearly all deaths from solid tumors.  We utilize the zebrafish for these studies due to its capacity for unbiased genetic and small molecule screens and remarkable imaging qualities.  We are currently studying metastatic mechanisms in melanoma, and have begun work to develop models of pancreatic cancer in the zebrafish.
