Angiogenesis in invasive ductal breast carcinoma
Croatia (CroMSIC) - University of Rijeka, Rijeka
Department of Pathology
Nives Jonjic M.D., Ph.D.
Dora Fuckar, dr.med
Type of Research Project
- Clinical Project with Laboratory work
What is the background of the project?
Angiogenesis, an essential step in development of neoplasia, is a complex process that involves the interaction of tumor cells with stromal cells. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) can participate in the induction of tumor angiogenesis and are thought to be of prognostic value in some neoplasmas.
What is the aim of the project?
The aim of this project is to analyse, by immunohistochemistry, the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in tumor cells of ductal invasive breast carcinoma NOS and in TAMs and to correlate their values with the microvessel density identified by expression of endoglin.
What techniques and methods are used?
What is the role of the student?
- The tasks will be done under supervision
What are the tasks expected to be accomplished by the student?
Will there be any theoretical teaching provided (preliminary readings, lectures, courses, seminars etc)
What is expected from the student at the end of the research exchange? What will be the general outcome of the student?
