Research group of Cancer Biomarkers (GReBiC)

Our group work focuses on three main lines of research lines related to cancer:

  • Digestive tumors: colorectal cancer and gastric cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Malignant pleural effusion

The three lines tackle diseases of high prevalence in our society which are associated with a high mortality rate.

Through translational and basic research approaches, we aim to find biomarkers of therapy response, of diagnosis for therapeutic intervention and of prognosis for risk stratification.
