Molecular Disease Biology
The section studies molecular mechanisms which determine disease progression, especially in relation to cancer. Our research efforts focus on four areas:
One of the main obstacles to successful cancer treatment is the development of treatment resistance. So how do molecular mechanisms affect drug resistance?
Our focus is on two main research activities: Identification of biomarkers for stratification of patients and for early detection of cancer.
that can be used to find individuals who are at high risk for development of cancer in the future
Our research group works with identification and characterization of pathogenic mechanisms responsible for Prostate Cancer progression.
The research group hosts the Sino-Danish Breast Cancer Research Centre, funded by the Danish National Research Foundation.
We are in the process of establishing three Danish cancer Research Centres, one Danish Comprehensive Cancer Center and one Nordic Comprehensive Cancer Research Center.
