Schwann cell-associated proteins in melanoma

Melanoma is an aggressive cancer derived from melanocytes. Interestingly, melanocytes and Schwann cells, both of neural crest origin, can transdifferentiate into each other. As two transcriptions factors with roles in Schwann cell differentiation were recently shown to be involved in melanoma development, this project aims to combine the expertise of both PIs and characterize further central Schwann cell transcription factors in melanoma to enhance the molecular understanding of this tumour.
