Cancer

Cancer is the manifestation of abnormalities within cells that result in uncontrolled proliferation and modifications of their environment that promote invasion and metastasis.

Our researchers study various properties of tumor cells, including genetic predispositions, environmental factors and molecular pathways that regulate transformation and malignancy. Their work has led to the identification of molecules that may be specifically targeted for diagnosis and treatment.
