Vision and aims
The overall vision is to unite basic and translational research for the benefit of the cancer patient.
The efforts of the centre are aimed towards a better understanding of the complex dynamics of cancer evolution, a more accurate prediction of cancer prognosis and response to treatment, and more powerful molecular based treatment.
- Identify genetic, epigenetic and morphological characteristics of cancer cells
- Develop and implement bioinformatic and biostatistical tools for handling complex data sets from canceromics and image analyses
- Identify and characterize molecular and cellular mechanisms for regulation of cell growth, proliferation, survival, differentiation and motility - and link these to potential cancer biomarkers
- Identify potential biomarkers for cancer, and validate their clinical utility.
