Laboratory of Experimental Oncology


Main organisation:Department of Oncology
Lifecycle:1 Oct 2005 →  Today
Organisation profile:

There are five main research topics in the Laboratory of Experimental Oncology ( LEO):

  • molecular characterization of rare tumors focused on identification of predictive biomarkers;
  • preclinical efficacy studies of novel targeted agents in soft tissue sarcomas using a unique panel of xenograft models derived from patient samples;
  • translational research, identifying prognostic markers related to experimental treatment, studied in biological samples originating from phase I-III clinical trials;
  • pathophysiology of selected side effects occurring in patients during the treatment with tyrosine kinase inhibitors;
  • prognostic and predictive biomarkers in breast cancer patients with a special focus on the biology of aging.
