Molecular Genetics Laboratory of Female Reproductive Cancer

  • The long-term objectives of our research team are: a. to understand the molecular etiology in the development of human cancer, and b. to identify and characterize cancer molecules for cancer detection, diagnosis, and therapy. We use ovarian carcinoma as a disease model because it is one of the most aggressive neoplastic diseases in women. For the first research direction, we aim to identify and characterize the molecular alterations during initiation and progression of ovarian carcinomas.

    Research Areas: genetics, diagnostic pathology, ovarian cancer, gestational trophoblastic diseases
