Dr. Yokota's research interests include:

My current research interest is the effect of mechanical and electrical stimulation in growth and migration of breast cancer cells. Depending on types and strength of mechano-electrical signals, existing data indicate that biophysical stimuli can induce local and systemic anti-tumor effects. I am interested in developing an adjuvant therapy useful for treatment of bone/brain metastases associated with breast cancer. I am also interested in tumor-bone interactions, in particular, the role of osteocytes and chondrocytes in the presence of mechanical stimulation.
