Role of Oncogenes in the Development, Maintenance and Progression of Tumour Cells
One of our main research focus is the study of specific genes (oncogenes) and their signaling cascades in the transformation of healthy cells into their cancerous counterpart. More specifically we are studying the molecular networks promoting cancer processes in human lymphocytic cells (lymphoma) and mammary epithelial cells (breast carcinoma). This research program will increase the understanding of cancer biology in order to develop more effective diagnostic tools and therapies against these diseases.
