MY projects are focused on pancreatic and prostate cancer with the overall aims to improve on current prognosis by facilitating the choice of therapy in specific patient populations.
The work involve:
- the establishment of 3-dimensional culture models (organotypic) that support patient derived tumour cells by optimising the addition of growth factors, supporting stromal cells and immune factors
- generation of optimised replication-selective (oncolytic) adenoviral mutants
- to apply the organotypic culture models for evaluation of the recently developed novel biological therapies and cytotoxic drugs in long-term co-cultures of cancer and stromal cells.
