Marie Webster, PhD

Resident Faculty
Assistant Professor

Dr. Webster is interested in understanding the mechanisms underlying phenotype plasticity that contribute to therapy resistance and disease progression in melanoma. Current projects in her lab include investigating the role of Wnt signaling and slow cycling cells in melanoma progression and epigenetic changes that occur in highly metastatic cells that promote survival following multiple types of stress. Her overall goal is to develop therapeutic strategies to target highly resistant cells.
