Research Groups

Experimental Cancer Research

The Laboratory of Experimental Cancer Research (LECR) dedicates its resources to understand the communicative determinants between cancer cells and their host tissue. Mapping tumor-environment interactions will lead to the identification of disease- or therapy-associated biomarkers and to novel therapeutic targets.

Radiation Therapy

The radiotherapy unit considerably contributed to the development of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) that aims to establish a dose distribution that conforms tightly to the tumour volume and to limit radiation to other normal tissues and critical organs.
