Project: Identification and study of factors with a possible role in melanoma progression and evaluation of their role as prognostic marker
- project duration
- 01-JAN-06 – 31-DEC-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, RT-PCR and Western Blotting on tumour tissue samples and melanoma cell lines, molecules with a possible role in melanoma progression will be identified. A correlation with clinical data will be established.
