Dr. Segall studies how tumor cells invade tissues and spread through the body. He has developed sophisticated imaging methods for following individual tumor cells moving in living animals.

This technique could one day be used for assessing the effectiveness of specific drugs in preventing cancer from metastasizing. read more...
