Research in the Transformation and Metastasis Group aims to identify novel therapeutic targets for epithelial cancer treatment and to elucidate resistance mechanisms to drugs currently available. Tumours exploit and manipulate for their benefit the same mechanisms that regulate homeostasis in healthy tissue. Thus, we first aim to understand normal development and then to identify the key events that lead to tumour initiation, progression, and metastasis in order to avoid and combat them. Complementary tools, including primary cell cultures and organoids, mouse models, and clinical samples, are used with the final goal of translating basic knowledge into clinically relevant findings.
