Paige completed her undergraduate education at Northeastern University in Boston, where she dual-majored in biochemistry and marine biology. After graduation, she joined Dr. Tannishtha Reya’s lab at the University of California San Diego to pursue her Ph.D. Her thesis work focused on defining the chromatin landscape and epigenetic functional dependencies of pancreatic cancer stem cells. In 2022, Paige joined the Tuveson laboratory to deepen her knowledge of pancreatic cancer disease models and identify new strategies for therapy. She is broadly interested in the mechanisms by which tumor heterogeneity, especially at the metabolic or epigenetic level, can drive clinically relevant features of disease such as therapy resistance and metastasis.
