Research at The Centre for Cancer and Organ Diseases

​The Centre for Cancer and Organ Diseases wishes to offer patient care and treatment at the highest international level. This goal can only be fulfilled with a strong focus on research and development.​​​

Disease awareness equals optimized treatment 

Understanding the nature of underlying disease mechanisms is one of our high-priority goals. Solving these riddles enables us to develop specific treatment strategies and novel methods for evaluating treatment responses, eventually leading to optimized treatment experiences for each individual patient.

Research on disease mechanisms contributes to fundamental insights into how e.g.  cancer develops, and paves the way for future treatment possibilities. 

Development and trial of novel therapies 

The systematic testing of different types of chemotherapies is essential in order to offer the most efficient combination of therapies with currently available medicaments and treatments.

Molecular biological profiling of certain malignancies allows us in cooperation with international partners to present treatment options that would otherwise be inaccessible. Our research on radiotherapy contributes to the invention of unique techniques and more accurate treatments with less adverse effects and late complications.

Chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and other immunosuppressant treatments are associated with increased incidence of infections. Consequently, we also conduct research on developing systems for individual risk-based therapy, with the potential to significantly reduce the problem.
