Thomas Brabletz, from the Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Department of Visceral Surgery of the University of Freiburg, Germany, focuses on malignant progression of gastrointestinal cancers, in particular molecular mechanisms of invasion and metastasis. The aim is to integrate basic cancer research and relevant clinical questions. Thereby the lab uses molecular and genetic in vitro approaches, cell and animal models, as well as human tumour material and patients' data.

He has been invited by Antonio García de Herreros (IMIM).
