Research Programs

Cellular Plasticity and Cancer Group

Our group focuses on the interplay between cellular plasticity, stem cells and cancer. Cellular plasticity is recognized today as a critical feature of cancer cells that enables them to transit between different cellular states, including reversible transitions.

Cellular Plasticity and Cancer Group
Growth Factors Group

We focus our research on mechanisms of resistance to targeted therapies and most importantly, how to overcome it by showing that breast cancers resistant to T-DM1, an antibody-drug conjugate ADC)- can be efficiently treated with the second generation ADC SYD985 (Nadal-Serrano et al.).

Growth Factors Group
Cancer Genomics Group

VHIO’s Cancer Genomics Group serves as a Core Technology laboratory. We are also dedicated to translational research as well as the development of novel genomic tests.
