μBONE – Colonization and Interactions of Tumor Cells within the Bone Microenvironment


Dresden, 01.10.2018

A Germany-wide consortium of cancer and bone scientists started its work on studying the initial colonization of bone by tumor cells and the early interaction with bone cells. To obtain mechanistic insights into these questions, the consortium focusses on breast and prostate cancer. The µbone research alliance will tackle the knowledge gap on bone metastases and reveal innovative mechanistic concepts of bone-tumor interactions for subsequent studies to prevent or cure bone metastases.
