Project description

We have identified novel molecules expressed during the early events of ovarian cancer invasion to healthy tissue. We hypothesize that these molecules are key to the metastatic process, and by specifically disrupting their expression we will disrupt the invasion process. This work will seeks to develop new therapeutic strategies to block ovarian cancer metastasis and the formation of metastatic nodules.
