BarrierForce director awarded prestigious ERC grant to tackle cancer spread!

We’re thrilled to announce that Prof. Johanna Ivaska, Director of BarrierForce, has been awarded a highly competitive European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant (2024-2029)! This prestigious funding will support her groundbreaking project, BorderControl, which delves into how cancer interacts with the body’s natural borders. BorderControl will investigate how these biological borders can be harnessed to prevent the spread of cancer. The findings hold immense promise for developing new strategies to halt cancer progression.
