Genetics Group

 
Ragnhild A. Lothe

Our research team studies the genetics and epigenetics of human solid tumours, with special emphasis on colorectal cancer, testicular cancer, and nerve cancer. To gain knowledge of the complex dynamics of cancer development we combine large-scale and detailed biology research using in vitro models and clinical samples. Our goal is to bring results from molecular biology into clinical utility.

The group is a member of the Centre of Excellence in Cancer Biomedicine, as well as the K.G. Jebsen Research Centre for Colorectal Cancer, which Ragnhild Lothe leads.

The Cell Signalling project group led by Edward Leithe is also a part of this group.
