Physical signatures of cancer metastasis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Metastasis is the development of secondary malignant growths at a distance from a primary site of cancer. Most of human deaths (90% )from cancer are due to metastasis. In order to study physical signatures of metastasis, detailed analyses of individual cell trajectories are performed. The compilation of animated and still visualizations selected for this movie summarize the key findings from the investigation using their model, and identify complex spatial and time dependent cell migration patterns.
