- Breast cancer biology
- Breast cancer biomarkers and new targeted drug therapies
Research Summary/InterestsDr. Sachdev’s research interests focus on the regulation of breast cancer biology by growth factors such as insulin-like growth factors, growth factor targeted therapy for breast cancer, and development of biomarkers for growth factor-targeted therapy. Her laboratory is examining the use of non-invasive magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy and gene array signatures to predict and monitor response to inhibition of insulin-like growth factor signaling in breast cancer cell growth and metastasis. She is also examining the mechanisms by which insulin-like growth factors regulate metastasis of breast cancer cells using animal models of metastasis and in vivo imaging.
