Progesterone receptor signalling in breast development and carcinogenesis

École Politechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. Lausanne, Switzerland

Cathrin Brisken, from the École Politechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, is interested in the genetic dissection of signaling pathways important in breast development and breast cancer. She is trying to understand how hormones interact with developmental signaling pathways in the breast to control growth and differentiation. For this, she uses mouse as a model system and techniques such as genetic manipulation of the organism and of distinct tissues, like the mammary glands.

She has been invited by Miguel Beato (CRG).
