The focus of research in the Leight lab is to utilize cutting edge biomaterials techniques to precisely vary the spatial and temporal presentation of 3D extracellular cues as well as develop new sensors to measure activity of specific members of the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) family. Using these novel materials, they investigate fundamental questions regarding the regulation of MMP activity and cancer cell function and response to treatment.
