Genetics Group

Ragnhild A. Lothe

Our main research program involves translational studies of primary and metastatic colorectal cancers (CRC), using genomics, drug screening, digital pathology and functional analyses. We are also the core lab of a European multicenter research study on MPNST (malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor), an orphan disease. To gain knowledge of the complex dynamics of cancer development we combine large-scale and detailed biology research using in vitro models and patient samples. The main goal is to translate biological discoveries into improved patient stratification and treatment.

The group includes three project groups in "Cell signaling" led by Dr. E. Leithe, "Computational oncology" led by Assoc. prof. A. Sveen and "Functional oncology" led by Dr. K. Kryeziu.
