Biography

My research focuses on developing an innovative therapy for glioblastoma (GBM) called "GliaTrap" - a modality to attract and trap migrating glioblastoma stem cells (GSC) that invade the brain parenchyma. These invading GSCs make current therapies ineffective and lead to a relapse and eventually to inevitable death. In order to develop an effective and safe therapy for GBM, I'm investigating the mechanisms of GSC migration and proliferation by utilizing molecular biology, imaging, engineering, and multi-omics/bioinformatics approaches.
