Dr Emmanuel Farge - Institut Curie, Paris, France

Dr Farge meets with ecancertv at EACR 2016 to discuss how mechanistic pressures from tumour cells on surrounding tissues that can lead to the spread of cancer.

This is in contrast to spread of cancer through molecular signalling and cellular division, and Dr Farge describes how the physical pressure exerted by tumours can upregulate tumourigenic signalling in healthy cells.

He describes the methodology behind these experiments, using magnetic liposomes to mimic tumour growth pressures.
