The Pharmacology research group performs basic research into areas of cell signaling and transcriptional regulation. One of our main goals is to decipher molecular mechanisms involved in cell migration, invasion and metastasis with the aim to improve therapeutic strategies for the treatment of cancer.
Our research projects includes studies of
- Cellular signaling through the atypical MAP kinases ERK3 and ERK4
- Regulation of gene-expression by the transcription factor Pax6
The research in our group is made possible with grants from the Norwegian Cancer society, Norwegian research Council, Helse Nord, and the Blix foundation.
