Cell cycle regulation in breast cancer
I am particularly interested in the process by which cells accumulate an abnormal content of DNA or aneuploidy. DNA damage must occur, either spontaneously or induced, but in conjunction, checkpoint controls must be abrogated to allow for the cell to maintain this aberration. We are currently studying the molecular events surrounding the abrogation of the g2 checkpoint in breast cancer and normal breast epithelium. In particular, we are investigating the role of BRCA1 in this process.
