The Chromosomal Replication Group studies how cells copy their genome; a process known as chromosomal replication. All cells need to duplicate their genome before splitting, even tumour cells. For this reason, chromosomal replication has been an especially important therapeutic target to stop tumour processes.
In recent years, there have been important technical advances that are allowing us to study this cellular process at the molecular level. This new knowledge opens the doors to exploring new antitumor treatments that allow improvements in the quality of life of cancer patients.
