Chakraborty, Sanjukta Assistant Professor


My research program is primarily focused on the central theme of inflammation as a prime modulator of lymphatic associated pathologies. One primary area of interest in my laboratory is to determine how an inflammatory tumor-lymphatic microenvironment contributes to cancer metastasis and progression. Lymph node metastasis is a prime prognostic indicator of tumor aggressiveness. Studies in my lab focus on the molecular interactions between the tumor cells and the surrounding microenvironment that promote lymph node metastasis. Further we are also interested in delineating the role of the microbiota in cancer progression and metabolic disorders.
