New project to investigate the role of novel protein in cancer metastasis

(Institute of Science and Technology Austria) Metastasis, the process in which a tumor spreads to other parts of the body, is responsible for 90 percent of deaths from tumors. In their new project, the lab of Daria Siekhaus, professor at IST Austria, will investigate the role of a novel protein in metastasis. The group previously identified a protein in the fruit fly Drosophila that could play a role in metastasis.
