Acronym: MetastaSys – investigating the systems biology of metastasis

Full title of the project: “Analysis of Molecular Markers and Pathways in Cancer Cells and Microenviroment that determine the Fate and Localization of Tumor Metastases”

The aim of the project is to identify molecular markers and pathways in cancer cells and their microenvironment that govern the fate and localization of tumor metastases.

The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in the framework of the call e:bio.

Funding period: 01.02.2013-31.01.2015

Prof. Dr. T. Beissbarth, Institute for Medical Statistics, UMG
