Research interests:
June is studying the underlying mechanisms of the organ specificity of certain cancer metastases, with a focus on breast cancer metastasis to bone. In particular, she is investigating the signalling of mechanically-loaded osteocytes to the perivascular niche environment and its effect on breast cancer tumour cells. Understanding these mechanisms will help illuminate new therapeutic targets to prevent the development of bone metastases in breast cancer patients.
