Dr. Wahl will present a brief overview of metastasis and its complexities. Wahl will also present on intratumoral heterogeneity and how it arises. Lastly he will discuss how tumor cells can reprogram to a very plastic state which, by the action of one transcription factor that is regulated by paracrine factors such as FGF, can reversibly produce motile, invasive cells that acquire a neural crest like state from transformed mammary cells.VIEW FULL BIO
