Research topic and relevance
Sébastien Carréno and his team study the skeleton of the cell with respect to its important role during cell division and cell migration. Anomalies affecting these two functions are often associated with the development and growth of a tumor. In seeking to understand how the cytoskeleton helps control cell division and cell migration, the research could open new avenues for cancer therapy.
