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.

Scientific aims

  • 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.
