Speaker: Dr Sarah Boyle, RAH Early Career Fellow, Research Associate, Tumour Microenvironment Laboratory, Centre for Cancer Biology, SA Pathology and University of South Australia
Title: Generation of a breast cancer-promoting microenvironment via ROCK-mediated mechanical signalling
Chair: Dr Eric Smith, Solid Tumour Group, Basil Hetzel Institute and The University of Adelaide, Level 1, BHI.
Speaker biography: Dr Sarah Boyle completed her PhD in 2015 at The University of Adelaide, investigating the roles of chemokine receptors in mammary gland biology and breast cancer, before joining the Tumour Microenvironment Laboratory at the Centre for Cancer Biology, South Australia, headed by Associate Professor Michael Samuel. She is currently a Royal Adelaide Hospital Research Committee early career fellow, investigating the role of the Rho-ROCK signalling pathway in cancer, mechanical force, and regulation of the tumour microenvironment.
