Mouse models of breast cancer and development


Postdoctoral Fellow:  The Whitehead Institute/Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Ph.D.:  University of Manitoba, Department of Microbiology
B.Sc. (Hon): University of Manitoba

Fields of Interest:

  • Genetic Models of Development and Disease
  • Functional Genomics and Proteomics

Research Interests:

The Egan lab uses mouse models to study breast cancer and mouse development. For example, we use gene targeting to design models for breast cancer which can be probed to define cooperative signaling networks that are involved in transformation and metastasis, and that can be targeted in the clinic.
