IISER Bhopal researchers have shown the mechanism by which breast cancer cells proliferate and spread. Their findings have important implications in designing therapeutic interventions for breast cancer. A team of researchers from IISER, Bhopal, led by Dr. Sanjeev Shukla, Associate Professor, Department of Biological Sciences, IISER Bhopal, undertook this research.
Highlighting the practical applications of this research, Dr. Shukla said, “Our research, for the first time, shows the reason behind an elevated expression of a key gene, ESRP1, in breast tumor tissue supporting tumor progression.”
