Research Summary

Jennifer Rosenbluth, MD, PhD, is a medical oncologist who specializes in breast cancer, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medicine, and a member of the Breast Oncology Program. The research in her laboratory utilizes three-dimensional organoid cultures of premalignant and tumorigenic breast tissues to identify heterogeneous populations of cells that promote cancer development and progression.
