Fighting Drug Resistance with Computational Methods

Fighting Drug Resistance with Computational Methods

The immediate aim of MicroC is to develop computational methods that allow us to better understand, and hopefully overcome, drug resistance in a particularly tough cancer, the triple-negative breast cancer. The ultimate goal is to generalize the approach and to unveil cellular behavior and interactions in a variety of complex diseases and environments, i.e. where different types of cells signal each other following different biological pathways.
