3D Cell Culture & Microfluidics: New insights in Prostate Cancer

PhD project summary
Acini are the basic 3D structures constituting a secretory epithelium. The mechanisms regulating acini development and lumen formation are poorly understood. Moreover, the disruption of apical polarity and the progressive transformation of acini into spheroids are key events in tumor progression. Therefore, the analysis of acini morphogenesis and cell polarity is critical to assess epithelial development, integrity and homeostasis and to study the pathogenesis of epithelial tumors. The PhD subject focuses on the study of epithelial cell morphogenesis and tubulogenesis.
