About the Project
The Sanz-Moreno lab works on understanding how cytoskeletal remodelling in aggressive cancer cells influences tumour progression, dissemination, metastasis and therapy responses. Moreover, we want to block the communication of aggressive cancer cells with their tumour microenvironment.We hope to find therapeutic vulnerabilities in cancer cells that are associated with their ability to remodel their cytoskeleton.
