Research interest

"Expression analysis of Genes involved in the Development of Adenocarcinomas in a rat model of Human Endometrial Cancer" -The research project aims to identify pathways of gene interaction during cancer development on both the genomic and the translational levels in a rat model of human endometrial adenocarcinoma.By means of cDNA microarrays, weare performinggene expression profiling(in collaboration with Swegene DNA Microarray Resource Centre). Furthermore, in the microarray analysis we also compare expression patterns in endometrial neoplasiaat different stages.The genomic analysisin the projectis performed by Fredrik Trossö and involvesCGH-microarrays.
