Description Biomarkers

Research in the theme Biomarkers aims to identify diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive molecules. These include alterations in the tumor genome and its epigenetic features, as well the functionally relevant transcriptome and (phospho)proteome. This knowledge is translated into clinically applicable tools for example by developing patient-friendly methods to inform clinicians on treatment efficacy, accurate tools for early cancer diagnosis, and rational prevention strategies.
