Colleen L. Doçi, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of biology at the Marian University College of Arts and Sciences. She earned a B.S. in chemistry with biochemistry honors from Purdue University. She then earned a Ph.D. in Cancer Biology from the University of Chicago with a focus on posttranscriptional regulation of angiogenic factors in epithelial cancers. She was awarded a postdoctoral training award from the National Institutes of Health at the National Institute for Dental and Craniofacial Research where she worked on the role of epithelial migration and vascularity in oral cancer metastasis. She has published over a dozen primary research articles, reviews, and book chapters and her work has been featured on the cover of Cancer Research. In 2015, she joined the faculty at Marian focusing on mentoring young scientists. Dr. Doci's research interests center on the role of angiogenic and lymphangiogenic signaling molecules in cancer pathogenesis and metastasis.
