My research focused on investigating drug resistance in breast cancer cells. I explored several distinct cellular growth pathways for their involvement in the phenomenon. I also tested some novel treatment options. I have also taken part in several other projects exploring the mechanisms of insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in adipocytes.
