Scientist: Lyndsey Crump, Ph.D.
Lyndsey’s interest in cancer research began when her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. She finished her undergraduate degree, then got a Master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin, followed by a PhD from the University of Colorado. Her thesis research was on a novel mechanism of endocrine resistance and metastasis in ER+ breast cancer. She is currently a post-doctoral fellow, still in Colorado, where she studies mechanisms of immune evasion and metastasis in both breast and ovarian cancers. Her overall research goal is to complete highly translational studies to inform better therapeutic approaches in the clinic.
