Presentation

The team project focuses on cell survival depending on neuropeptides in oncology. The project is developed over 4 complementary themes : 1) Endogenous secretion of neuropeptides and interaction of their signaling pathways involved in cell survival 2) Autophagic activation linked to the interaction with neurotrophins 3) Involvement of neurotrophins in therapeutic resistance due to cancer stem cells 4) Functions of exosomes in tumor microenvironment associated to mechanisms of therapeutic escape These different topics are achieved by developing translational and transdisciplinary research in order to : – Identify and evaluate the value of diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers – To contribute in the development of new tools for diagnosis in collaboration with labex Σ-Lim teams.
