Andrei Bakin, PhD

Associate Professor of Oncology
Department of Cancer Genetics and Genomics
Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center
Special Interests: 
Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition and metastasis
Tumor-Associated Fibroblasts in Breast cancer microenvironment
Ribosome Biogenesis and cancer genetics
Novel therapeutics against metastatic cancer


Dr. Bakin graduated with honors from Moscow Lomonosov University and received his PhD in Molecular Biology from Moscow Lomonosov University. He received postdoctoral training in oncogenes with Dr. Tom Curran at St. Jude Children’s Hospital and breast cancer biology with Dr. Carlos Arteaga at Vanderbilt University. Dr. Bakin has done pioneering research in the field of epithelial-mesenchymal transition and breast cancer metastasis. His work contributed to better understanding of basic principles of ribosome biogenesis. Dr. Bakin has significant experience in signal transduction, genome-wide expression and proteomics research. His research involves orthotopic and bone metastasis models of breast cancer.
