Anne’s research is focusing on metastatic neuroblastoma and breast cancer and the molecular mechanisms behind its aggressiveness and unpredictable clinical behaviour. For this purpose, she implemented the use of chick embryos as a research model, including chorioallantoic membrane implantation, intravenous and targeted injection, dissection and histological analysis. Furthermore, Anne developed protocols for advanced live egg imaging with fluorescence and magnetic resonance imaging in and ex ovo.
