PhD in nerve/tumor interactions and nervous system development

Posted by on June 18th, 2018

Applications are invited from¬†highly motivated individuals dedicated to peruse a PhD and who are interested in nerve/tumour interactions and nervous system development.¬†   PROJECT DESCRIPTION During tumour progression nerves and tumours interact resulting in tumour cells using nerves as a metastatic route out of the organ, through a process called perineural invasion (PNI). While this[…]

Mechanical cues as developmental pacers that orchestrate morphogenesis

Posted by on March 22nd, 2018

In these lines I share with you some details of our recently published Nature paper. I will comment how this project was started and details which are not included in the manuscript. Finally, I will briefly comment on some questions we are working on today and others we believe are worth addressing in the future.[…]

A study on cell migration provides insights into the movement of cancer cells

Posted by on November 20th, 2013

Using Drosophila melanogaster, researchers at IRB Barcelona discover that during multiple cell migrations a single cell can act as leader, dragging the others with it. _____________ The migration of groups of cells in order to form tissues is common during the development of an organism. Discovering how these multiple movements are achieved is not only[…]

Cinematic Highlights at the BSDB Meeting 2011

Posted by on July 5th, 2011

As promised, in this final part of my meeting report on the BSCB-BSDB Spring Conference 2011 I will highlight a couple of talks which came with visual effects – studies involving live imaging. I prefer to watch these movies in seminars rather than downloading them with a paper because getting live explanations can make things[…]
