Research: 
cancer biology, tumor microenvironment, mechanisms of metastasis and drug resistance
Biography: 

Madeleine Oudin's graduate research focused on understanding the interplay between multiple signaling pathways in driving neuronal cell migration in response to growth factors during adult neurogenesis. Following the completion of her Ph.D. from King's College London, she completed postdoctoral studies in Professor Frank Gertler’s lab at the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT. There, she investigated the process of cancer metastasis to understand what tumor cells are likely to metastasize, what pathways render them highly invasive and sensitive to local guidance cues, and how the presence of highly metastatic cells might affect response to therapy. She will join Tufts in 2018.

Education: 
Ph.D., Neuroscience, King's College London, 2011
M.Sc., Pharmacology, King's College London, 2007
B.Sc., Biochemistry, McGill University, 2006
Professional Experience: 
2017-present:

Visiting Assistant Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Tufts School of Engineering

2012-2018:

Postdoctoral Fellow, Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, MIT

Research Interests: 

The main goal of Madeleine Oudin's independent research program is to investigate the role of the various components of the tumor microenvironment in driving tumor metastasis and drug resistance, using an interdisciplinary approach that will combine cell biology, microfluidics, intravital imaging, systems biology, and implantable devices.
