Department of Tumor Biology
Department Head: Professor Gunhild M. Mælandsmo, PhD
To improve treatment of metastatic cancer.
Through basic and translational research in the area of cancer biology and computational science we aim to improve systems understanding and identify novel interventions. We emphasize multidisciplinary competence and collaboration between researchers, clinicians and patients to stimulate the necessary synergy for improved cancer care.
Our goal is to identify candidate biomarkers and therapeutic targets, followed by validation in preclinical models and further translation to clinical trials.
We encourage a culture in the department based on visionary thinking, collaboration, curiosity and quality.
Department of Tumour Biology comprises four research groups:
- Translational Cancer Therapy, headed by Professor Kjersti Flatmark (MD, PhD)
- Computational Cancer Genomics and Melanoma Systems Biology, headed by Professor Eivind Hovig (PhD)
- Molecular Biology of Sarcomas, headed by Jørgen Wesche (PhD)
- Metastasis Biology and Experimental Therapeutics,, headed by Professor Gunhild M. Mælandsmo (PhD)
