The Alan and Sandra Gerry Metastasis and Tumor Ecosystems Center (GMTEC) brings together a diverse group of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s basic scientists and clinicians who are conducting research with a focus on metastatic traits, brain metastasis, tumor ecosystems, the metastatic microenvironment, and latent metastasis. GMTEC supports their research initiatives with funds that are raised and targeted specifically for metastasis research.
In this section, you will find information about GMTEC, its mission and scope, leadership and activities, the various funding opportunities offered through the center, and past projects funded. The center’s new Single Cell Research Initiative (SCRI) is also featured, with details on current collaborations, resources available, and support and collaboration opportunities for researchers.
