Charlotte Vines
Assistant Professor, Biological Sciences

Dr. Vines studies the G protein-coupled receptor called CC Chemokine Receptor 7 (CCR7). This receptor (expressed on different populations of T cells, activated B cells, neutrophils, monocytes, NKT cells and dendritic cells) plays roles in regulating trafficking of these cells into and out of the lymph nodes. Her laboratory studies the signaling events that are controlled by CCR7 that promote migration of cells in the body. Her laboratory is working to identify signaling events in breast and T cell cancers that can serve as targets to block growth or movement of these cancers.
