  1. Tumour cells conquer territory from their neighbours using a newly discovered mechanism


    How do tumoural cells replace healthy cells to promote tumour progression? Scientists from the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown and from the Institut Pasteur (Paris, France), identified a mechanism that responds to cell deformation and can be exploited by tumoral cells to squeeze out and kill their neighbours. This mechanism may promote the early expansion of tumours.


  2. Champalimaud Researcher Receives two million euros grant from the European Research Council to study defensive strategies, from neurons to behaviour
