Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Nadine Hempel's research interests center on understanding molecular mechanisms that regulate metastasis and tumor recurrence of ovarian cancer, with the ultimate goal of identifying novel targets for therapy of advanced-stage disease. Her research group uses a variety of molecular, cellular, imaging and in vivo techniques to focus on two research areas in ovarian cancer biology: first, the role of mitochondrial antioxidants and reactive oxygen species during metastatic progression; and second, the regulation of mitochondrial dynamics and metabolism in ovarian cancer.
