Studies on the genetic control of development have proven to be very been fruitful in unveiling the mechanisms impaired in many disease conditions.

Researchers describe the first model of adult metastasis developed in the fruit fly

This research will help to identify those genes that play a key role in the initiation of metastasis

Metastasis causes 90% of cancer related deaths

Histone 1, the guardian of genome stability

Genomic instability is the main risk factor for tumour development in humans. Therefore understanding its origin and exploring therapeutic targets is paramount.

Histone 1 silences a region of the genome that causes irreparable DNA damage when translated and is lethal for the organism.

M. Milán: “To study how cells communicate with each other, perhaps the best model organism is the fruit fly”

The “Meet Our Scientists” video entitled “Our relative the fly” presents the research performed by Marco Millán on the fruit fly.

He studies the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the regulation of tissue growth during normal development, its proper functioning and the formation of a tumour.
