The long-term goal is to identify novel targets that can be translated into new therapeutic approaches for cancer patients. The team’s research data through integration of functional and clinical data could lead to identification of altered signaling pathways in different type of cancers and establishment of prognostic and predictive markers. Through development of genetically engineered mouse models new mechanistic and novel target therapeutics could be tested and define specific interventional molecules for targeted therapies. These could be the basis for individualized treatment strategies.
