I focus in the mechanism and molecular basis of blood clot growth and its 3D structure using novel microfluidic systems. I am currently studying the effect of shear flow on integrin mediated platelets adhesion to specific substrates using video microscopy.
Dr. Erin N. Howe
I got my Ph.D. in Cancer Biology from the University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus. My overall research interest is in understanding and fighting cancer metastasis. At the University of Notre Dame, I am jointly appointed to the Zartman and Zhang labs. My research focuses on dissecting the molecular mechanisms of breast cancer brain metastasis, and developing novel therapeutics. In the Zartman lab specifically, I am utilizing Drosophila as a model organism to rapidly screen genes for their functional involvement in brain metastasis.
