Reorganising the structure of tumours
The spatial and structural organisation of tumours hold information about the likely future course of cancer disease. This is information that doctors can use to determine a prognosis for patients. In this context, the ERC-funded CAN_ORGANISE project will use imaging techniques to analyse these structures and patterns. Specifically, it will reconfigure the spatial organisation of the tumour microenvironment using structural information about the extracellular matrix and dynamic analysis. With longitudinal intravital imaging, project partners will analyse and identify mechanisms of control of spatial patterns in breast and skin cancer models.
