Description
MRC : Mohammad Reza Roozitalab: MR/N014308/1 Cancer cells can be expanded and studied alone outside of the body in two-dimensional plastic dishes. These simplistic conditions lack the genetic variation and complex signals found in human tumours that tell cancer cells to grow uncontrollably and spread throughout the body. To effectively identify the signals that fuel breast cancer spread and develop clinical therapies to stop them, scientists require new ways of growing cancer cells outside of the body. The student will receive world-class training in Canada to build innovative three-dimensional 'mini tumour models' that better mimic the native environment of can...
