The Burdette lab is interested in biological questions that are important for women’s health.  We integrate imaging, drug discovery, organ on a chip, 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.
