Research Interests

Although I do not have an active lab at Davidson, I am passionate about furthering basic science research—especially the field of cancer biology. I love passing this fervor onto Davidson students in various courses. I am particularly interested in the loss of tumor suppressor proteins during cellular transformation, but I also enjoy understanding and teaching about the molecular basis of normal physiology including pregnancy.
