Breast cancer advocate Sandi Spivey and local metastatic breast cancer patients tour Lawson lab and discuss new developments in breast cancer research.
Devon talks to the crowd about local breast cancer research before the American Cancer Society’s annual Making Strides walk in Orange County to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.
Devon visits CBS LA news to discuss new developments in breast cancer, in honor of breast cancer awareness month and the upcoming American Cancer Society Making Strides walk in Orange County.
The Lawson lab is interested in understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the metastatic spread of cancer cells to peripheral tissues. We take a systems-level approach, using cutting edge single-cell technologies to understand how the interplay between intracellular signals within the cancer cells, and extracellular stimuli from cells in the microenvironment influence the metastatic potential of individual cancer cells. We believe that new insights into the metastatic process will lead to new drugs to prevent and treat metastatic disease.
