Dr. Shirley is a surgical oncologist who researches the role of the protein integrin-linked kinase (ILK) in the progression of aggressive thyroid cancers. Dr. Shirley's lab is actively investigating the etiology for increased ILK expression in these fibroblasts, while also examining the role of fibroblasts in general in thyroid cancer progression. Through this research, they hope to identify novel treatment strategies for a variation of a common cancer for which there are no effective therapies.
