As ERA Chair, Adriana Sánchez-Danés will drive an ambitious frontier project that will tackle the fate of tumor cells in vitro and in vivo. She will combine genetic mouse models, tumor organoids, mathematical modeling, imaging techniques and quantitative analysis to uncover the mechanisms involved in tumor progression, resistance and relapse. As such, her research program will bridge and transform the three main operations at CCU i.e. neurosciences (“CNP”), physiology and cancer (“BSM”) and clinical research.
