In the Aguirre-Ghiso lab, we are interested in understanding the biology of disseminated tumor cells (DTCs). In particular we are interested in the mechanisms that favor survival, dormancy and switch into growth of loco-regional or secondary organ DTCs. My research interest lies in the interaction of macrophages with tumor cells to facilitate dissemination from the primary site as well as a switch towards a proliferative state in the secondary site. Our rationale is that once we understand how macrophages regulate these processes, we will better understand how alterations in the microenvironment where tumor cells lodge affect dormancy onset and reactivation.
