Metastasis is responsible for over 90% of cancer-related deaths. In order for cancer cells to spread, they need to adapt to the environment they encounter. Our research aims to understand how cancer cells navigate cancer remodeled extracellular matrix (ECM) and how changes in ECM composition and topology can drive tumorigenesis. Our work is multidisciplinary and we take advantage of various imaging modalities to understand cancer cell migration and ECM remodeling in vivo and ex vivo.
