Ever wonder how cancer maneuvers around the body?


Metastatic spread: GFP-labeled tumor cells entering an axillary lymph node

Welcome to the Skobe lab, whose members conduct groundbreaking molecular research linking the dynamic relationship between the lymphatic system and cancer metastasis.

Our lab has shed light on many aspects of this complicated interplay, including the role of the vascular endothelial growth factor C (VEGF-C) in promoting lymphangiogenesis, and the large array of molecular mechanisms that promote cancer dissemination.
