The role of cell polarity regulators in mammary gland development & breast cancer

Project Description

The incorrect orientation or shape of cells within breast tissue is one of the earliest signs of cancer. A better understanding of how the genes that control tissue organisation are involved in breast cancer may not only lead to the discovery of useful prognostic markers to grade pre-malignant breast lesions, but will also provide molecular insights into mammary gland biology and breast cancer progression.
