Dr. Korkola's research work is primarily on breast cancer, with a focus on how interactions with microenvironment impact the phenotype of cancer cells, emphasizing those that alter the way cells respond to therapy. The Korkola Lab also is interested in understanding the mechanisms of resistance induced by extrinsic and intrinsic factors and developing multidrug combinations to overcome resistance and improve patient outcomes.
