The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us: vindicating Morpheus through studies in cancer

Ramray Bhat

MRDG, IISc Bangalore

Carcinogenesis has been described as a process in which rules governing tissue patterning are violated. Recent research in metastasis suggests this is just part of the picture: as cancer cells travel through diverse extracellular matrix microenvironments, they adapt, organize and remodel their surroundings by evoking principles entrenched in morphogenesis. I will present two examples, one each from invasion of breast and ovarian cancer, wherein fascinating transitions in mesoscale morphogenetic behaviors can be observed and linked with unique matrix dynamics. Possible consequences of such behaviors on cancer progression will also be discussed.
