Laura Sipe is an interdisciplinary cancer biologist. Dr. Sipe completed her doctorate at the University of Virginia. As a post-doctoral scholar at University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Dr. Sipe investigated the how metabolism and diet impact breast cancer progression and the ability of cancer to evade destruction by the immune system. Dr. Sipe will bring her expertise in cancer, immunology, and metabolism to UMW to research a novel pathway linked to breast cancer aggressiveness. Students in her laboratory will investigate oxidative stress, genetic instability, and immune evasion in breast cancer.
She teaches Cell Biology (BIOL340), Biology of Cancer (BIOL440), and Immunology (BIOL441).
