The molecules that drive cell movement

A new study visualizing cells' 'leading edge' sheds light on processes behind cellular migration

Sept. 23, 2016 | By Rachel Tompa / Fred Hutch News Service

Fred Hutch biologist and director of the Basic Sciences Division Dr. Jonathan Cooper studies the molecules that drive cell movement. Understanding how cells migrate through the body will help scientists better understand not only embryonic development, but disease processes such as wound healing and cancer metastasis.

Brain cell migration may offer clues to cancer metatasis

Cooper, Jossin find surprising new role for N-cadherin; finding could shed light on how normal and cancerous cells migrate within the body

April 25, 2011 | By Kristen Woodward

By shedding new light on how cells migrate in the developing brain, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center scientists may have found a new mechanism by which other types of cells, including cancer cells, travel within the body. The findings by the Basic Sciences Division's Dr. Jonathan Cooper and Dr. Yves Jossin, a research fellow in the Cooper Lab—published online April 24 in Nature Neuroscience—could lead to a better understanding of neurological development and, possibly, cancer metastasis.
