Welcome to the Cell Division and Cancer research group

The Cell Division and Cancer Group

The Cell Division and Cancer Group is interested in deciphering the mechanisms by which cell division, cell proliferation and cell differentiation are regulated in mammalian cells.  As a final goal, we aim to generate knowledge and methodological approaches that may be useful for:

i) improving current anti-tumoral therapeutic strategies

ii) expanding the efficiency of pluripotent cells to differentiate into specific cellular lineages of interest in regenerative medicine.
