Host: Rodrigo Leite de Oliveira

The main goal of our laboratory is to uncover stromal pathways that contribute to tumorigenesis and metastasis. In an effort to discover novel target molecules for stromal-directed therapies, we combine state-of-the-art transgenic mouse models with gene expression profiling, intra-vital imaging and pre-clinical approaches to reveal the molecular events at the earliest stages of metastasis. Our main focus is on studying the role of inflammation and cancer-associated fibroblasts in breast cancer and lung metastasis, and to uncover the role of neuroinflammation in melanoma brain metastasis. Expanding our understanding of the early stages of metastatic growth is an essential prerequisite for the discovery of novel target molecules for the design of targeted therapeutics that may prevent, rather than try to cure, metastatic disease.
