What are your academic interests, what do you do?
My research mainly focuses on the metastasis of cancer. This is mainly breast cancer and the job of our team is to analyse cancer cells found at various stages in the development of the cancer. We investigate the gene expression level and the level of specific proteins linked to a greater potential for metastasis in cancers.
