Junior Research Group 1, Dr. Ceppi

Understanding the plasticity of cancer cells

The Junior Group is focused on the mechanisms that regulate cancer plasticity and at studying the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition, the cancer stem cells and the association between cancer differentiation and sensitivity to chemotherapy. We aim at identifying novel mechanisms that regulate the plasticity of cancer by the use of several cell and molecular biology techniques, mouse models, and the analysis of human samples as well as by –omics and high-throughput approaches.
