research examines the role of Notch family signaling molecules in human breast cancer.
findings indicate that the Notch gene is abnormally expressed in a significant proportion of breast cancers and that this correlates with poor outcome in patients.
Current efforts in his
laboratory are focused on determining whether Notch signaling genes can serve as therapeutic targets in breast cancer.
