Headed by Prof. Simone P. Niclou and Dr Anna Golebiewska, the NorLux Neuro-Oncology Laboratory has developed a strong translational research programme on brain cancers to understand the underlying biological mechanisms of malignant gliomas and develop innovative treatment strategies based on clinically relevant animal models. The research focuses on tumor angiogenesis, metabolism, tumour heterogeneity and treatment resistance and applies emerging molecular and cellular approaches, including large scale screens, genomics, proteomics, patient derived animal models and in vivo imaging (MRI & PET).
