"Metastases go with the flow"

 

RESEARCH AXIS

Biomechanics is a key component of the metastatic cascade:
Our laboratory focuses on the late stages of this process, namely dissemination, arrest and extravasation of circulating cancer cells (CTCs), as well as the importance of factors secreted by the primary tumor,
in particular extracellular vesicles (EVs). This is articulated around four major axes.
