Pancreatic cancer cells don’t seem to rely on EMT for metastasis – but it plays a key role in their ability to resist our best chemotherapy options

Diagnostics Oncology

Tracking the Transition

| Dingcheng Gao

A triple-transgenic mouse model allows researchers to trace the lineage of EMT tumor cells, and reveals the transition’s surprising lack of significance in metastasis

Diagnostics Oncology

Proceed With Caution

| Shyamala Maheswaran

Two recent studies on EMT may revise the field’s understanding of the process – but it’s important to keep in mind both the breakthroughs and the limitations of the work
