Brief description Cancers are lethal mainly because they spread (metastasise) to other parts of the body via blood vessels and lymphatic ducts. Pilot studies suggest that suppressing the function of a gene, SOX18, reduces tumour metastasis. We now propose to confirm these findings and study this effect in detail, with the ultimate aim of developing new therapies able to complement already existing anti-cancer treatments.
