Moshmi Bhattacharya

Moshmi Bhattacharya

PhD; Oncology (Experimental), Physiology and Pharmacology

Research Interests / Specializations: Breast cancer metastasis; cell signaling; cytoskeleton, receptors (growth factor and GPCRs), trafficking, small GTPase Dr Bhattacharya's research interest is focused on understanding the mechanisms that regulate the metastatic spread of breast cancer. In particular, she is interested in elucidating the molecular mechanisms by which G protein-coupled receptors by cross-talking with growth factor receptors, regulate the cell cytoskeleton to modulate the processes of cancer cell migration and invasion required for metastasis. These multidisciplinary studies are conducted using in vitro models, 3-D cell culture models, patient samples and tissues and animal models of metastasis.
