Dr. Hens is working on a project that demonstrates that MR can increase levels of two
mitochondrial SLC transporters in triple negative breast cancer. Her preliminary data
suggests that MR increases apoptosis through a mitochondrial specific mechanism in ETC
Complex V. Additionally, Dr. Hens is working in John Wysolmerski’s laboratory focusing on the role of
calcium sensing receptor(CaSR) and GABAR1 and GABAR2 interactions in breast cancer.
