Dr. Ostrowski’s lab focuses on understanding interactions between signaling pathways located in the different cell types involved in complex biological processes of cancer cell progression and normal cellular differentiation. For example, a breast tumor is composed not only of the epithelial cell-derived tumor cell, but also stromal cells, endothelial cells and immune cells, including macrophages, B cells and T cells. His lab team uses a combination of genetic mouse models, human samples, genomic technology and molecular genetics to attack these problems.
