Brain Metastasis Group
The laboratory develops research
projects on brain metastases.
What do we do?
Our objective is to understand the biology of brain metastasis in experimental models in order to develop new opportunities for treating patients suffering from this disease.
Are there more effective ways to find drugs working against brain metastasis?
Radiation gets immediate access to the brain but it is not as effective as expected, why?
Surgery is a key aspect in the treatment of some patients with brain metastasis. If the metastasis is removed, why is this therapy not curative?
We apply a multidisciplinary approach to study the biology of brain metastasis as a strategy to create new opportunities to improve the clinical management of the disease. Our team consists of technicians, graduate students and postdoctoral researchers with experience in different scientific fields.
