Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition; Melanoma
- Tissue Homeostasis Group
Head: Karin Pfisterer
My research focusses on analyzing key characteristics and processes of the epithelial-mesenchymal transition in melanoma cells. I am investigating the migratory behavior of poorly and highly metastatic cells to compare the differences and thereby identify underlying cellular processes of cell migration.
