Project: Identification and study of factors with a possible role in melanoma progression and evaluation of their role as prognostic marker
- project duration
- 01-OCT-04 – 14-FEB-09
- This project focuses on three different domains: Ras superfamily of GTP-ases, Transforming Growth Factor-beta family and Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor-C. Based on immune histochemistry and RT-PCR on tumour tissue samples combined with migration and invasion assays on melanoma cell lines, molecules with a possible role in melanoma progression will be identified. A correlation with clinical data will be established.
