Research Focus

The main goal of our research is the characterization of biomarkers that help to predict the course of the disease or the response to therapy in cancer patients.

These biomarkers should enable better use of existing therapies, help to identify new targets in cancer therapy or expand knowledge for new therapy concepts and ultimately improve the outcome of cancer patients.

To achieve this goal, we analyze tumor tissue from cancer patients for genetic or morphological changes and for the activity of various proteins.
