Breast Cancer, Cancer Stem Cells, Microenvironment Interactions

Kevin received his B.S. in Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology from the University of California, Los Angeles. He is currently in the UCI Medical Scientist Training Programm (MSTP). His graduate research under Kai Kessenbrock is focused on the metabolic and paracrine interactions of the breast microenvironment in the pathogenesis of breast cancer.
