Welcome to the Gilkes Lab
Breast and Ovarian Cancer Program | Johns Hopkins School of Medicine
Our lab is part of the Breast and Ovarian Cancer Program at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
Of the deaths attributed to cancer, 90% are due to metastasis, and treatments that prevent or cure metastasis remain elusive. Emerging data indicate that low oxygen tension (hypoxia), which occurs in most solid tumors, alters the biophysical and biochemical parameters of the extracellular matrix within a tumor. Our work is focused on the role of hypoxia in breast cancer. One of our main interests are some particular genetic alterations that happen under hypoxia. We are also investigating how hypoxia promotes ECM organization and metastasis. We are a dynamic and creative lab that always likes a good challenge. We address our questions through 2D and 3D
We are currently looking for a post-doctoral fellow. Please email Daniele at email@example.com with a CV for further inquiry!
