The Burdette lab is interested in biological questions that are important for women’s health.  We integrate imaging, drug discovery, and basic biology to try and understand how and where ovarian cancers originate.  Our research primarily uses mouse models to understand early events in ovarian cancers.  We are also using natural products to uncover new anti-cancer molecules.
