Danijela's Bio

Danijela currently works at the Department of Cell Biology and Cancer, Institut Curie, where she is the head of the group "Migration and Cellular invasion".


The broad objective of our research is to understand how epithelial cells interact with their microenvironment during migration in gut homeostasis and cancer invasion. We use a gut as a model system, and our strategy is to combine different models such as 3D cell cultures, tissue explants, mouse models and human samples coupled with different microscopy techniques and biophysical modeling.


At CRI, she is in charge of the AIV M2 Bibliographic Synthesis course and she is a member of the M2 mentoring team.
