Research Interests

Kimberly MecDermott, PhD, focuses on understanding how normal cellular and developmental processes are altered to contribute to carcinogenesis. She is specifically interested in understanding how primary cilia regulate cellular processes during branching morphogenesis and breast cancer progression. These studies will provide significant advances to our understanding of the events involved in carcinogenesis. Also, Dr. McDermott hopes that they will provide unique strategies for diagnosis and treatment of human cancers.
