Our overarching goal is to understand the impact of mechanical stress on the living, with a strong emphasis on cancer. To this end, our research is subdivided into two main subgoals: unraveling the universal impact of compressive stress on the living, and investigating the specificities of compressive stress on cancer. We indeed believe that solutions can come from the most unexpected places and that studying various organisms from bacteria to yeasts all the way to mammalian cells can help us decipher the impact of compressive stress.

Impact of compressive stress on cancer progression and treatment

Is there a universal response to compressive stress?
