Short Bio: 

Research in the McDermott lab focuses on understanding how normal cellular and developmental processes are altered to contribute to carcinogenesis. We are specifically interested in understanding how primary cilia regulate cellular processes during branching morphogenesis and breast cancer progression. We believe these studies will provide significant advances to our understanding of the events involved in carcinogenesis and hope that they will provide unique strategies for diagnosis and treatment of human cancers.
