Using chemical tools to understand the glycobiology of metastatic breast cancer

Lead Research Organisation: Imperial College London
Department Name: Dept of Chemistry

Abstract

Aberrant glycosylation is a hallmark of cancer. Glycans are recalcitrant to classic genetic engineering, calling for alternative methods to understand their physiological function during tumorigenesis. This project will focus on the development of chemical tools to dissect the role glycans play in the metastatic behaviour of breast cancer.
