Dr. Eastham’s research focuses on the discovery of natural products that have anti-cancer properties, and that can enhance the effectiveness of chemotherapeutic drugs. This includes rapid, high volume screening techniques. Also, her research involves using various molecular biology techniques to investigate the mechanisms by which phytochemicals work to enhance cancer cell death. Her research also involves the isolation and characterization of cancer stem cells and their response to natural products. The most effective and promising phytochemicals are evaluated using animal models.
