Brief description Tumours induce the regional growth of lymphatic vessels (in a process termed lymphangiogenesis) and then spread (a process termed metastasis) via lymphatic vessels and lymph nodes. Inhibiting lymphangiogenesis can inhibit metastasis. We have identified a gene called ccbe1 that is essential for lymphangiogenesis during development. We aim to understand how this potential therapeutic target functions at the molecular level during lymphangiogenesis.
