Metastasis, the dissemination of cells from the primary tumor to other sites within the body, is responsible for 90% of deaths linked to cancer. Chemotherapy is the standard of care for metastatic breast cancer, although many patients do not respond well or develop resistance to these drugs. The goal of our research is to understand the contribution of the components that surround and support tumors in these processes, in particular the extracellular matrix, to better predict which tumors will metastasize and become drug-resistant, as well as find new ways to treat them.
