Why study cell plasticity?

Metastasis is the major cause of death in cancer patients due to cancer cell dissemination to distant organs. Cell plasticity is a core characteristic of metastatic cells and tumour aggressiveness. The PLAST_CELL interdisciplinary consortium will pioneer the development of a microfluidics-based imaging platform to study cancer cell plasticity for a new era of basic research and personalized medicine
