The Burdette lab is interested in biological questions that are important for women’s health.  We integrate imaging, drug discovery, microfluidics, and basic biology to try and understand how and where ovarian cancers originate.  Our research primarily uses mouse models and organs on a chip to understand early events in ovarian cancers.  We explore the potential of natural products for new anti-cancer molecules and their mechanism of action.
