One of the most versatile and potent of growth-regulatory proteins, TGF-β, is a major focus of Dr. Arrick's research. Particular attention is being directed at efforts to better understand the role of TGF-β in tumor formation and the malignant phenotype, using the model of breast cancer. A second focus of research in Dr. Arrick's lab is elucidation of the function(s) of the recently-discovered gene responsible for many cases of inherited breast cancer (called BRCA1).
