There is no such thing as peace in the universe of a human body. Although we are not conscious of it, the cells in our bodies are constant under different kinds of pressure and influence. Some influences are good, such as the process of cellular healing, and some are detrimental, such as the creation of tumours or the spreading of cancer. Understanding these processes may lead to a better understanding of the disease and, perhaps, the discovery of a cure. That is the goal of Pere Roca-Cusachs’ team. Their project MECHANO-CONTROL targets breast cancer by taking a very innovative approach.
