Carole Parent is a research professor at the Life Sciences Institute and the inaugural Lynne and Raymond W. Ruddon Collegiate Professor in Cancer Biology and Pharmacology in the Department of Pharmacology at the Medical School. She joined U-M after serving as deputy director of the Center for Cancer Research at the National Cancer Institute.
Her research interests focus on understanding how cells detect and respond to external chemotactic signals that are detected by GPCRs, and, in particular, how the spatial and temporal relay of chemotactic signals between cells impact single and group cell migration in the context of inflammation and cancer metastasis.
