Research Interests

The Weaver laboratory studies many aspects of cancer invasion and tumor progression. Current invadopodia projects include: 1) the role of actin assembly proteins, such as cortactin, in invadopodia-associated ECM degradation; 2) how physical aspects of the extracellular matrix affect invadopodia functions; and 3) computational modeling of invadopodia.
