lyons research lab

The Lyons laboratory focuses on mechanisms of semaphorin 7a and lymphatic mediated metastasis of breast cancer.  Specifically, we utilize mouse models of breast cancer to investigate developmentally regulated programs of inflammation and lymphangiogenesis that are utilized in the adult mammary gland and may be hijacked by breast tumor cells.  The results of these translational studies have the potential to instruct therapy aimed at prevention of breast cancer metastasis.
