Tanasa Osborne, DVM, Veterinary Pathology Fellow
Dr. Osborne received her D.V.M. from Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2002. In 2002, Dr. Osborne entered a combined residency/Ph.D training program in Anatomic Pathology in the Department of Pathobiology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Upon completion of her residency in 2006 Dr. Osborne began graduate training in comparative pathology through the Graduate Partnership Program at the National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MD. Dr. Osborne joined the Khanna lab in January 2007. She is currently pursuing her dissertation research in metastasis biology using a transplantable syngeneic mouse model characterized by orthotopic growth in balb/c mice at appendicular sites and spontaneous metastasis to the lung in the Tumor and Metastasis Section. Her research is focused on defining the role of eukaryotic initiation factor 4E (eIF4E) and an enabled translational machinery in osteosarcoma metastasis.
