Research goals

The research uses genomics tools (sequencing, molecular cytogenetics, array-CGH, mRNA/miRNA profiling, tissue microarrays, targeted gene disruption) to analyse breast cancers with the following aims:

  1. Generate better classifications and validate prognostic/predictive markers;
  2. Identify novel therapeutic targets;
  3. Characterise pathways of tumorigenesis and epithelial transformation.
