This project will determine how a new protein that we have shown to contribute to cancer progression, affects cell shape, tissue structure and communication pathways important for cancer development. The outcomes of this project might reveal a new cancer biomarker and lead to the identification of novel therapeutic approaches to combat particular cancers.
