Institute of Pathology: Laboratory of Molecular Tumor Pathology

Following up on early studies on the molecular identification and functional characterization of cellular oncogenes and their antagonists, the tumor suppressor genes, our current research focuses on systems-oriented tumor biology, particularly on signal transduction systems in cancer cells. The objectives of research projects are aiming at a detailed understanding of the organization, regulation and biological features of signalling systems in order to integrate basic cancer research, molecular tumor diagnostics and predictive oncology.

The group’s teaching activities comprise education in molecular pathology as part of the regular pathology curriculum and the international master program in molecular medicine. The lab provides an on-going platform for experimental thesis work in medicine, cellular and molecular biology as well as in cancer systems biology.

The laboratory of molecular tumor pathology, founded in 1996, was supported by grants from the German Cancer Aid, including a Dr. Mildred Scheel Professorship.
