Lele, Tanmay Professor


Dr. Tanmay Lele's research is in the area of mechanobiology with a focus on cancer mechanobiology. His lab is interested in the molecular mechanisms by which cell generated mechanical forces and associated signaling pathways enable cell and tissue functions, and how these relationships become altered in cancer. Current research projects in the laboratory include quantitative measurements of nuclear forces, the effect of mechanical stresses on nuclear functions and gene expression, cellular adaptation to mechanical properties of the extracellular matrix, and the mechanics of cancer tissue development.

Lele is a scholar in cancer research at the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas.
