We all need to communicate - to share our ideas, our work, our dreams. So how do you get people to not only ‘like' what you say but ‘love' what you say? How do you get the support you need to share or develop your ideas? The truth is people give more money and support to ideas and people they feel emotionally connected to because it’s our emotions, not our thoughts, that drive our actions. “The essential difference between emotion and reason is that emotion leads to action while reason leads to conclusions”.

Metastasis is the main cause of cancer related deaths from solid tumors. Although significant progress has been made in identifying its genetic, molecular and cellular determinants, we still do not fully understand the metastatic process, hampering our ability to develop specific anti-metastatic therapies. Recent conceptual and technological advances are providing an unprecedented opportunity to address this problem.
In recent years proteomic analyses, functional screening, and genome sequencing have not only identified the parts lists of important cellular structures of the microtubule cytoskeleton, such as centrosomes and cilia, but has also revealed their involvement in cancer, their connection to central regulators of cell cycle and cell fate, and their involvement in preventing a range of developmental and degenerative disorders.
