IRB Barcelona, Spain

Motivation: The research activity in his lab is focused towards the characterization of the mechanisms that drive colorectal cancer initiation and progression. In the last ten years and amongst other findings, the Batlle laboratory has made key contributions to understand how stem cell gene programs control the behavior of tumor cells and impose a hierarchical organization on colorectal cancer. More recently, he has investigated the phenomenon of metastasis and particularly how disseminated tumor cells depend upon signals from the tumor microenvironment for survival during colonization of foreign organs
