Cancer cells undergo transformations to become metastatic, or capable of invading other tissues and traveling throughout the body. By studying this metamorphosis in detail, researchers hope to identify new therapeutic targets to interfere with this process and shut down cancer metastasis.

Cancer biologist Daniel Dickinson was recruited to the Department of Molecular Biosciences at The University of Texas, Austin, to study the cellular mechanisms of how cancer cells become metastatic. He was a postdoctoral fellow in cancer biology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and was recruited with the help of a First-Time Tenure-Track Award from CPRIT.
