About the Serial Volume Editors

Clement Thomas

Clément Thomas is holding a group leader position at the Department of Oncology of the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH; Luxembourg City, Luxembourg). He received his PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology in 2003 from Strasbourg University (France) in 2003. Since that moment, he has been interested in cell plasticity with a particular focus on actin cytoskeleton remodeling mechanisms. After more than ten years working with plant models, he joined the department of Oncology of LIH and established a group focused on the functions of the actin cytoskeleton in two central and complementary processes underlying cancer progression: invasion and immune evasion. Clément Thomas and his colleagues characterized a family of small, evolutionary-conserved, LIM domain-containing proteins (cysteine and glycine-rich proteins) that crosslink actin filaments into stable actin bundles and established the role of these proteins in promoting the formation and activity of invadopodia in breast cancer cells. Lately, Clément Thomas’ group has initiated a pioneering study aimed at elucidating the role of the cancer cell’s actin cytoskeleton during immune evasion.
