Dr. Mark Lundquist, who received his PhD in Pharmacology last year from our program, Dr. Samie Jaffrey, and their colleagues have identified an important new pathway responsible for the development of cancer and its spread to other parts of the body, a process known as metastasis. The finding provides new opportunities to prevent cancer metastasis and helps to explain how one drug that is already in development works to stop the disease's spread. This work was published in Cell 2014 Jan 30;156(3):563-76.
