U-M researchers develop method to observe cancer cells’ potential to metastasize in the body

Via University of Michigan | December 16, 2021

When cancer cells metastasize, they morph, becoming missile-shaped in order to penetrate into other tissues throughout the body.

In fact, to travel throughout the body, metastatic cancer cells must change their phenotypes—their physical characteristics. This change allows stationary, epithelial cells which compose the barriers of our organs and our skin, to morph into mesenchymal cells, or the cells that develop into connective tissue, blood vessels and lymphatic tissue… Continue reading.
