Profiling Cancer Cell Invasion and Plasticity in Biomimetic Materials

Amanda Khoo has been a warm and charismatic leader in the lab since starting her PhD in 2016. Amanda’s research focused on analyzing cancer cell invasion and phenotypic plasticity using biomimetic 3D platforms. While working on her PhD, Amanda further explored her passions by earning a Master’s degree in Data Science through the Brown Open Graduate Education Program. Despite all her accomplishments, Amanda always made time to help fellow labmates troubleshoot lab work or talk through the highs and lows of grad school. The laughter and excitement you brought to our lab made research seem a lot less arduous, and we will miss your presence! We will all cherish our memories of grabbing snacks on Thayer, listening to Spotify, playing volleyball, badminton, board games, and working together on Discord. We are incredibly excited for what the future holds and wish you success in all your endeavors! -Current and former Wong Lab members (Alex Hruska, Dhananjay Bhaskar, Catherine Machnicki, Alex Markoski, Alejandro Marzoratti)
