The newspaper ABC has reported on a new project to be launched by IRB Barcelona researcher Roger Gomis thanks to a grant from the Fundación Fero Mango. Focusing on luminal breast cancer, one of the most common subtypes, the project aims to decipher the “dialogue” between tumour cells and bone stem cells. This information can then be used to design therapeutic targets and to limit the capacity of these cells to metastasize. “This is a groundbreaking approach to tackle metastasis in this kind of cancer,” says Gomis.
