Researcher biography

Dr. Davis believes that the key to unlocking the mysteries of breast cancer lies in our understanding of normal breast development and homeostasis. Her research seeks to understand the cellular hierarchy in the breast and the pathways that regulate adult stem cells. She also studies the unique capacity of the mammary gland to sustain multiple cycles of pregnancy and lactation, a remarkable feat of regeneration. Dr. Davis hopes that a greater understanding of the processes governing growth, death and remodeling under physiological conditions will help to identify new strategies for curbing the uncontrolled growth, death resistance and remodeling that is common to all breast cancers.
