Name: Dr. Sandrine Faure
Research Description:
The aim of our project is to study the regulation of Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition and cell invasion. The research area covers the functional crosstalk of Rho GTPase members in cell detachment and migration using the Xenopus laevis embryo neural crest cell model and mammalian epithelial cell cultures.
