Dr. Shukla is interested in developing micro-nanotechnology based tools to study the biophysical aspects of tumor and tumor microenvironment. Changes in the structure of the tumor ECM with tumor progression are an important aspect of tumor metastasis as these changes are conducive to enhanced cell detachment/migration. Hence, she would like to develop strategies to target these structural changes either through direct interventions or by targeting the cell types (and relevant pathways) responsible for the ECM restructuring. These strategies, in addition to the current standard of care, will help improve patient outcomes.
