Dr. Rodland's own research focuses on signal transduction pathways that regulate proliferation in normal and malignant cells. She was the first to recognize the role of the calcium-sensing receptor in modulating proliferation in response to small molecules in the extracellular environment. Since joining PNNL, she has adopted a systems biology approach to signal transduction and has become a recognized expert in the field of proteomics and cancer biomarkers. She is a full member of the National Cancer Institute's Early Detection Research Network, and is the chair of the Clinical Proteomics Tumor Analysis Consortium Steering Committee. She has served as Chair of the Cancer Biomarkers Study Section for the NIH, as well as the Department of Defense Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program Integration Panels for both Ovarian and Breast Cancer Research.
