Kaitlyn Schuster is working with Penni Black, who is researching the deregulation of oncogenic signaling cascades in non-small lung cancers. She is currently focusing on the way in which a certain type of immune system cell, the M2 macrophage, may promote tumor growth and metastasis. Further research concerning this process could lead to the development of novel cancer treatments and more personalized options for lung-cancer patients.
