Mouse models for breast cancer
Breast carcinoma is the most common female cancer.
The multiplicity of genetic lesions found in human breast tumors has complicated the identification of mutations that are responsible for tumor formation.
The main goal of our laboratory is to establish such causal relations in advanced mouse mammary tumor models, and to identify genetic alterations that cooperate with the initiating mutations in mammary tumorigenesis.
