Congratulations to Minae Mure for receiving a Nation Institutes of Health (NIH) R01 grant. The funded project titled "Understanding the Roles of PTM's in Modulating Molecular Functions of Lysyl Oxidase-Like 2 in Breast Cancer Cells" will fund the Mure research group to dissect and understand the relationships between the structures of various forms of LOXL2 and their corresponding molecular contributions to breast cancer metastasis/invasion. Ultimately, the results of this study should greatly aid the design of strategies to inhibit LOXL2 and slow the progression of invasive breast cancer.
