Laboratory of Tumor Biology

About us

Main goal of the Laboratory of Tumour Biology is to study novel prognostic and predictive markers with the capacity to improve treatment of oncology patients. We use colorectal cancer as a tumour model, because it is one of the most common malignant diseases worldwide as well as in the Czech republic. Within individual projects we measure expression levels of selected genes during tumour development, assess markers of cancer stem cells in the tumour samples or detect and characterize circulating tumour cells in the peripheral blood, including whole genome analysis of individual cells.
