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.
