Tissue remodeling in arteries due to sickle cell disease or HIV-infection, roles of proteases in tumor metastasis, and bone marrow-derived stem cell based therapies.

 

Cancer research in the Platt lab focuses on the role of roles of proteases in tumor metastasis, and bone marrow-derived stem cell based therapies.  Recent work has focused on a novel approach for the detection of abnormal levels of cathepsin K in body fluids and the utility of these changes as an early biomarker of metastatic disease.
