Her work on regeneration has been extended into National Cancer Institute (NCI)-funded studies of novel aspects of breast cancer causation. Her research interests include immunology, regenerative medicine and cancer. Education and career Heber-Katz received her B.A. in microbiology and immunology in 1969 and her M.S. in immunology in 1972 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, studying with Robert E. Click. Her M.S. thesis focused on the role of reducing agents as critical factors in cellular immune responses.
