Molecular travel agency
How Wnt proteins stimulate cell migration

Cells are great travellers: they travel our body all the time. Not for leisure, but work-related: their travels are necessary for the formation of tissues and to repair damage. But how do they know when to start moving, and where to travel to? The Rik Korswagen Group dives into the travel agency of our body and the molecules that guide and schedule our cells’ travel plans.
