Brief description The spread of cancer to other organs involves cancer cells changing to a more aggressive state and is a major cause of cancer related death. MicroRNAs are a class of genes that control whether cancer cells become more aggressive by regulating other genes. In this project we will examine the function of a new microRNA target which controls the cancer cell aggression. The outcome will be a better understanding of how cancers spread and the identification of new therapeutic targets.
