Dr. Heather Dunn is the recipient of the Clemson University Bradley Award and the CAFLS Teaching Award of Excellence. She serves as the AVS Study Abroad Coordinator.
Dr. Dunn's research group studies the mechanisms involved in triple negative basal breast cancers that are associated with poor prognosis and high mortality rates. They have a particular interest in understanding mammary gland development and the implication of developmental cellular events that are reactivated in certain types of invasive human breast cancers. This group also studies the epithelial-mesenchymal transition by evaluating cellular signals in metastasis associated with the tumor microenvironment during invasion and survival.
