Reprogramming of cancer cells into non-malignant cells

The aim of this project is to use the information gained about “Achilles' heels” of cancer and tumour-host interactions to achieve cancer cell reprogramming, i.e., to transform cancer cells into dying or non-malignant cells.

Specific tasks include:

  • Genetic reprogramming of cancer cell lines
  • Pharmacological and metabolic reprogramming of cancer cell lines
  • Cancer reprogramming in fruit fly tumour models 
  • Cancer reprogramming in zebrafish tumour models
  • Cancer reprogramming in patient-derived xenograft models
