Research/Areas of Interest:

A key feature of cancer cells is the reprogramming of energy metabolism in order to support continued growth and proliferation. Monocarboxylate transporters are key figures in regulating aerobic glycolysis. Currently I am looking at the significance of monocarboxylate transporters in melanoma using human melanoma cell lines as a model.
