The Kreeger Lab

The Kreeger lab utilizes systems biology and tissue engineering to analyze cellular behavior in a variety of biological contexts. We utilize an iterative approach, where we develop model culture systems that allow us to study a disease in a controlled environment, use high-throughput experimental methods to gather information about the cellular signaling network and cellular responses, and employ computational models to interpret the data. Ultimately, our models will be utilized to identify new drug targets, match patients to the most effective drugs, and identify methods to direct cellular behavior.

Kreeger Lab publishes new mechanism of ovarian cancer metastasis

May 2018 – The Kreeger Lab has identified a new mechanism where macrophages ‘educate’ the peritoneum to increase adhesion of ovarian cancer cells during metastasis. The work, published in Cancer Research, is described in this press release The Kreeger Lab was recently awarded a Pilot Grant from the Rivkin Foundation for pre-clinical validation of this […]
