Research

Dr. Chambers earned her doctorate in the fields of biochemistry, molecular and cell biology. These fields strive to understand how life emerges via interactions among nonliving matter. She has always been intrigued by the molecular logic of life. The fact that all of the complex activities and properties of living organisms come from a collection of lifeless molecules undergoing numerous chemical reactions is amazing! Her research is focused on studying the molecular aspects of cancer.
