My project focuses on metastasis and the yielding of cancerous cells from tumours. Zoomed in, I am investigating the mechanical pathways of metastasis by looking at differences in mechanical response from tumours as a whole compared to single cell mechanics using the micropipette aspiration technique. With this project, I hope to further unravel the world of intracellular interactions and signalling in cancers which may lead to improvements in the medical field.
