PhD Student in cancer invasion research - CT0321
The Cytoskeleton and Cancer Progression (CCP) group belongs to the Department of Oncology, whose activities focus on the cellular and molecular mechanisms of tumor progression using a wide range of cutting edge technologies, including genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic analyses, and in vitro and in vivo imaging modalities as well as state of-the art animal models for cancer research. The CCP group focuses on actin regulatory proteins and related signaling pathways driving tumor cell invasion and immune evasion, with the goal to identify new prognostic markers and therapeutic targets (see our webiste). We combine biochemistry, cell biology, reversegenetics and advanced live-cell imaging approaches as well as mouse models of breast cancer metastasis.
