Researchers from our group develop a new strategy to to target cancer progression and metastasis. The study was published in the journal Cell Communication and Signaling
Congratulations to Adonis Chadjigeorgiou and Neophytos Christodoulou for securing a grant from Cyprus Seeds to help commercialize an innovative device designed in the lab that can faithfully recapitulate the tumor microenvironment and allow drug screening for anti-metastatic agents as well as research on tumor cell invasion and metastasis.
Researchers from our group, Ioanna Antoniades and Annita Charalambous, were hosted by the TV program "Από μέρα σε μέρα" of the RIK1 channel to discuss their recent discovery about the FAK protein role in Cancer metastasis.
Dr. Paris Skourides was interviewed by Nikitas Kyriacou on Ant1 channel and talked about our lab's new discovery about a novel promising strategy to target the Focal Adhesion Kinase (FAK), a protein involved in cancer progression and metastasis.
Big Congratulations to Dr. Nicoletta Petridou, former PhD student in our lab, for her appointment as a group leader at EMBL (from Dec. 2020). Her group aims to understand how complexity emerges during early embryo development, focusing on the role of critical points and transitions in tissue morphogenesis. Congratulations on your well-deserved success Nicoletta and best wishes for a successful new adventure!
Congratulations to our postdoc Neophytos Christodoulou for the amazing work he completed in the Zernicka-Goetz lab at Cambridge during his postdoc. The study highlights the importance of the mechanical role of basement membrane during embryogenesis.
New paper published by Ouranio Anastasiou and Rania Hadjisavva in Science Signaling titled “Mitotic cell responses to substrate topological cues are independent of the molecular nature of adhesion”! Article was selected as the cover story of the journal.
