Cancer Research

Our research focuses on pathogenesis, biomarkers and patient-derived cell culture models of prostate, bladder and lung cancer.

Additionally, we study the pathobiology of inherited diseases caused by LMNA-mutations, such as dilated cardiomyopathy. Research work is led by associate professor of molecular pathology, chief pathologist Pekka Taimen and the research team consists of experts in biomedicine and various clinical fields.
