Cancer Stem Cells Working Group
The Cancer Stem Cell Working Group (CSCWG) is an informal circle of OIST researchers and students with a shared interest in cancer stem cells and relevant associated topics: cancer heterogeneity, treatment resistance, metastasis, development of new therapies and technological challenges. CSCWG members meet every two weeks to present new data, discuss about new ideas, papers, protocols that might be of interest for CSC research.
