SNF Sinergia Project "Omentum"

The interdisciplinary Sinergia project designs and establishes a semi in vivo “omentum model” in order to study the process of ovarian cancer spread towards the omentum, a poorly-studied organ localized in the peritoneal cavity to which ovarian cancer commonly metastasizes. This project includes the laboratories of Prof. V. Heinzelmann and Prof. I. Martin (both DBM, University Hospital and University of Basel), Prof. B. Rothen-Rutishauser (University of Fribourg) and Fachhochschlue Nordwestschweiz Muttenz (Prof. U. Pieles).
