In this project Karolinska Institutet will set-up a novel systematic, comprehensive analysis of what combinations of adhesive/migratory alterations result in the induction of tumour cell motility and invasion, by developing a novel, multi-parametric analysis framework for the quantitative characterization and interrogation of mechanisms underlying the Core Invasive Machinery of cell adhesion and migration. This original approach will be performed in live highly metastatic cells, in 2D and 3D environments..
