Matthew E. Burow, PhD
Associate Professor of Medicine
Dr. Burow received his B.S. in Biology in 1994 at the University of Southern Mississippi. He completed his Ph.D. in 1998 at Tulane University from the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Molecular and Cellular Biology. Dr. Burow carried out his post-doctoral studies with Dr. John McLachlan at the Tulane/Xavier Center for Bioenvironmental Research.
Dr. Burow's primary research interests focus on understanding the molecular mechanisms that control estrogen receptor mediated gene expression and anti-estrogen resistance in breast carcinoma cells in the progression of breast carcinoma to a hormone independent, drug resistant and metastatic phenotype. Through this research Dr. Burow has developed a second research direction focused on the development of novel anti-cancer agents based upon naturally occurring plant phytoallexins known as glyceollins.
