Research Team

Our research is focused on tumors, such as breast, endocrine, and lung cancers, etc. We study the cellular and molecular basis of cancer. We are involved in the areas of immunology, molecular oncology, and diagnostic and therapeutic techniques for cancer, and autoimmune diseases and we aim to develop and find effective computational techniques for the analysis of biomedical data.
