Research Description: 

Alum Shruti Davey completed her degree in 2016-17.  The experimental plan for my research includes three aims: 1) to quantitatively characterize the deformation of the fiber networks within collagen gels during cell invasion using reflective microscopy and image analysis, 2) to establish predictive model of the collagen network based on "polymer theory" using molecular dynamics, 3) and to determine the role of MTl-MMP in ECM remodeling during cancer cell invasion with emphasis on temporal and spatial variations in activity.
