Over the past 30 years she have focused on cell adhesion processes and their regulation during tumor progression and metastasis. One of the initial relevant contributions was the identification of the loss of E-cadherin associated to tumor progression in experimental mouse models and in human breast carcinomas. Those studies paved the way for the use of E-cadherin as a biomarker in different carcinomas, presently used in the clinic.
