Dr Nils Cordes - Center for Radiation Research in Oncology, Dresden, Germany

Dr Cordes speaks with ecancertv at EACR 2016 about the link between integrins and DNA repair.

Integrins represent a family of cell adhesion molecules which, when inhibited, can aid in radiotherapeutic targeting of cancer cells. 

Dr Cordes reports on the overlap between this radiosensitizing capability and therapies which directly prevent the repair of damaged DNA in cancer cells.

He describes how models and results from other tumours have shaped his research in cell adhesion, including the emergence of radio-resistance and combination therapies.
