Role of Wnt signalling in the ageing lung 

The lung cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer type in the world, but nowadays the survival rates -after therapic treatment- are still very low (~15%). Multidrug resistance plays a central role in it, this problem mostly occurs when the cells are frequently handled with a single cytotoxic drug. Our aim is to understand the role of ABCG2 drug-transporter in drug-resistant lung adenocarcinoma cell line, using hanging-drop cell culture technique.
