Oncogenesis and tumour progression of melanoma group
This group belongs to the UMR 1279 - Tumor cell dynamics
In our group we are studying in parrallel:
- The biology of melanocytes which are pigment producing cells responsible for skin color
- The biology of cutaneous melanoma, which derives fromm melanocytes.
Using a comprehensive approach, we strive to identify mutations responsible for melanoma transformation and genes involved in metastasis.
