Karla Williams

Dr. Karla Williams research expertise spans oncology, specializing in biochemical determinants of tumor metastasis and in tumor-derived extracellular vesicles. Dr. Karla Williams’ research is focused on the development of extracellular vesicle based predictive and prognostic tests for breast cancer. The Williams lab also studies extracellular vesicles and invasive structures termed invadopodia to understand the impact they have on cancer progression. The goal of Dr. Williams’ research program is to develop clinically relevant tests to direct patient treatment while improving our understanding of the metastatic condition.
