Research description

The Harrell Lab is interested in identifying and targeting cellular processes that contribute to the growth of metastatic breast cancer cells. We utilize in vitro, in vivo, and in silico approaches to collect and analyze data, which are derived from novel patient-derived xenograft metastasis models. High-throughput drug screens and single-cell RNA-sequencing are providing unique insights into metastasis biology and new treatment options.
