The focus of research is investigation of anticancer activity of newly synthesized chemical complexes and bioactive substances from natural sources. Emphasis is on molecular mechanisms and key proteins of signaling pathways involved in migration and invasion processes. Moreover, co-cultures system  (interaction microorganisms with different colorectal cancer cell lines) is great part of my interest.
