Dr. Senger’s research interests are in the area of brain development and tumorigenesis in both pediatric and adult central nervous system (CNS) tumours including defining the molecular characteristics of highly invasive glioma, investigating cancer stem cells as potential therapeutic targets, and establishment of in vivo models for preclinical testing. In addition, her research has focused on identification and implementation of therapeutics for the treatment of metastatic melanoma and osteosarcoma. Strategies include standard approaches of dissecting signaling pathways that mediate susceptibility, resistance and apoptosis as well as assessing the role of inflammatory pathways in organ-specific cancer metastasis.
