Dr Shanmugam is a cancer biologist and Associate Professor in the Department of Hematology and Medical Oncology at the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University. Dr. Shanmugam is studying how cancer cells alter their metabolism to evade programmed cell death, promote immune evasion and foster cooperative metabolic heterogeneity in invasion and metastasis. Her long-term objective is to investigate cancer metabolism to identify targetable metabolic vulnerabilities and predictors of therapy response to develop metabolism-informed precision therapeutic strategies.
