Understanding cancer using small molecule anti-cancer drugs
Research
We work on cancers that express Estrogen ReceptorĀ Ī±, including breast, ovarian, and uterine with a view to better understand and treat these cancers. We use a pre-clinical anti-cancer drug as a tool to probe the...

Welcome to the Livezey Lab! Using the tools of biochemistry and molecular biology, we are working to better understand cancer using small molecule anti-cancer drugs.

The Livezey Lab aims to create an inclusive, welcoming space that values diversity of experience, background, and opinion, especially of marginalized or minoritized groups and peoples.
