The goal of our research is to understand why women with obesity are more likely to develop breast cancer, and to develop intervention strategies to decrease risk and improve outcomes for patients. We primarily use rodent models, but with the help of our collaborators we extend our findings to ask similar questions in women. Currently, our work is focused on understanding how weight gain and resulting inflammation during menopause increases cancer risk and progression.
