Research Description: 

The goal of my project is to understand how cancer cells modulate sphingolipid metabolism to facilitate tumor survival and metastasis. We aim to identify sphingolipid metabolism genes that are essential for in vivo tumor growth and interrogate compartment-specific sphingolipid metabolism to probe novel mechanistic insight and its influence on tumor progression. My co-mentors are Dr. Christian Metallo and Dr. Neal Devaraj.
