April Kloxin

April Kloxin

Associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering and materials science and engineering

April Kloxin, an associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering and materials science and engineering, studies how the microenvironment around breast cancer cells in the body plays a role in activating these cells from a dormant state, leading to disease recurrence. Her lab is developing materials that mimic tissues in the body where late recurrences happen in order to answer fundamental questions about how breast cancer cells behave and toward designing therapeutic interventions to prevent recurrence. Kloxin’s inspiration for this research is personal, as her mother is a breast cancer survivor. When Kloxin read the literature about this disease and realized the devastating impact of breast cancer recurrence, she decided to make it her research focus.
