Classifying collective cancer cell invasion


Most invasive solid tumours display predominantly collective invasion, in which groups of cells invade the peritumoral stroma while maintaining cell-cell contacts. As the concepts and experimental models for functional analysis of collective cancer cell invasion are rapidly developing, we propose a framework for addressing potential mechanisms, experimental strategies and technical challenges to study this process.
