Research Interests:

Extracellular vesicles, microparticles, mitochondria, inflammation

Role of extracellular vesicles in inflammatory diseases

In my laboratory, we investigate the role of small cells (microparticles) in promoting inflammatory diseases, including cancer. These small cells communicate with the microtumor environment. Our research aims to establish a link between these small cells and their ability to promote tumor growth.

Involvement with BHCRI to date:

Dr. Boudreau is a BHCRI Associate Member
