Basic and translational biomedical research to explore the etiology and pathogenesis of diseases is performed by several research groups of our department. We use cell biology, functional genomics and proteomics techniques to identify the mechanisms of cell, tissue, and organ defects. Research fields include experimental hematology and oncology (stem cells, transcription control, experimental therapy and diagnosis of malignancies, iron metabolism) , proteomics, mathematical modeling of nervous system.
