Cell Signaling and Proteomics

Philippe Roux and his team seek to understand the molecular mechanisms by which oncogenes transform a normal cell into a cancerous one. This knowledge is crucial for the discovery of novel therapeutic targets and to decipher the molecular causes of resistance to treatment.
