    images5It is no novelty influence the monumental work of Joan Massagué and his team from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, where he is director of Biology and Cancer Genetics. Massagué, awarded in 2004 with the Prince of Asturias Award for Technical and Scientific Research, has for two decades in the United States to develop his career and achieved great success in research. Massagué is also a researcher at the prestigious Howard Hughes Institute, deputy director of the Institute of Biomedical Research and a member of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States and the European Molecular Biology Organization .


    Joan Massagué has spent most of his research in the field of cell division and processes associated with tumor metastasis, striving to unite the work of basic research and clinical, laboratory and patient. Massagué and his many disciples, some of them researchers and practicing in Spain, have consolidated a few years deciphering some of the genes involved in the spread of tumors from one organ to another.


    His numerous works, widely cited in scientific literature, highlights the role of some genes in the development of new tumors and in particular the decisive intervention of others, independently or in conjunction with the above-in the spread of cancer cells to other organs. Among these studies, the most recent open the possibility of new drug therapies designed based on the patient’s genetic profile, conferring specificity tremendously important to save the diversity of causes involved in the occurrence of a given tumor.
