Tumor Genetics

The main aim of research in this section is to identify the role of genetic variation in causing heritable or familial forms of cancer. It includes research to discover new genes involved in this predisposition, as well as research to unravel the functional impact of genetic variation on protein function and its connection to cancer predisposition.

The functional work includes in vitro models (cell lines) as well as mouse models. In terms of cancer types, our research focuses on breast cancer and paragangliomas.
