Tumours exploit and manipulate for their benefit the same mechanisms that regulate homeostasis in healthy tissue. In the Transformation and Metastasis Group, we aim to understand normal mammary gland development and the key events that lead to tumour initiation, progression, and metastasis in order to identify novel therapeutic targets to combat breast cancer. We use complementary tools, including primary cell cultures and organoids, lineage tracing mouse models, and clinical samples with the goal of translating basic knowledge into clinically relevant findings.
