Worldwide Cancer Research sponsors a breast cancer metastasis project at the IMIM

The global organisation Worldwide Cancer Research, based in Scotland, will fund a three-year breast cancer metastasis study by Toni Celià-Terrassa, from the IMIM's Molecular Cancer Therapy Research Group. The project aims to explore the dynamics and behaviour of tumour populations that undergo epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) during breast cancer metastasis. For this purpose, advanced 3D microscopy and single-cell transcriptomic techniques will be used in conjunction with computational biology analysis.

Worldwide Cancer Research is a charity, similar to the Spanish AECC, that funds cancer research by world-renowned scientists as well as new talent, selecting projects that are conducted at competitive institutions. Since its creation in 1979, it has provided funding to 34 different countries for a total amount of 180 million pounds.
