Research topic and relevance
Marc Therrien and his team are studying signalling mechanisms involved in cell proliferation and differentiation. Disregulation of these mecanisms is the basis for a large number of cancers. This research seeks to understand the molecular events enabling cells to perceive and interpret external stimuli, which in turn may lead to the delineation of new targets and avenues for anti-cancer therapies.
