Starving Cancer Away

Just like our healthy cells, malignant cancer cells need energy to survive. Sophia Lunt explains how she intends to cut off cancer cells' survival potential, and pioneer a new way of halting their growth.

Sophia Lunt began her training in metabolism at Princeton University, where she received her Ph.D. studying the metabolic consequences of the antibiotic drug trimethoprim. As a postdoctoral fellow at MIT, she  focused on cancer metabolism, and was awarded the CDMRP PRCRP Visionary Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Department of Defense to support her research. She currently runs a research lab focused on cancer metabolism at Michigan State University.
