Dr. Lotan is a urologic pathologist who studies how oncogenic signaling pathways regulate epithelial morphogenesis during embryonic development and tumorigenesis. Her basic research focuses on the role of PTEN/PI3K/mTOR signaling in a number of epithelial systems (prostate, breast and skin), and is principally directed towards understanding how these oncogenic signaling pathways affect epithelial differentiation, cell adhesion and migration using transgenic mouse models.
