CD36 and Fatty Acid Metabolism as Therapeutic Targets in ER+ Breast Cancer

This project builds on previous work done in our lab where we showed that drug resistant breast cancer cells switch to fatty acid oxidation as a survival pathway. My project asks if we can target fatty acid uptake and production to starve the cancer cells and prevent disease recurrence.
