Summary

The Echeverria laboratory studies molecular evolution of triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) therapy resistance and metastasis. The focus of the lab is to delineate the metabolic and molecular evolution of TNBC using state-of-the art patient-derived xenograft mouse models and in vitro mouse- and patient-derived organoids. The lab utilizes functional genomics approaches, single-cell technologies, multiplexed tissue imaging, and metabolomics with the ultimate goal of combating tumor evolution to improve the lives of women living with TNBC. Seeking a highly self-motivated technician that provides research support, technical assistance, and lab organization. The laboratory’s work involves cell lines and state-of-the-art mouse models. Projects include dissection of the molecular underpinnings tumor cell-microenvironment interactions as they pertain to therapy resistance and metabolic adaptations of therapy-resistant tumor cells, as well as single cell analyses of primary and metastatic TNBCs. The lab provides an interactive and stimulating scientific environment and opportunities for growth.
