Molecular Cancer Research Group

The Molecular Cancer Research Group performs basic research within the research areas autophagy, cell signaling and regulation of transcription.

Specific protein-protein interactions and their functional consequences are being addressed in all projects using a set of biochemical-, cell biological- and immunological tools. Bioimaging and Proteomics are important in the research strategy of the group. Our research is funded by the Norwegian Cancer Society and the Norwegian Research Council in addition to the support we receive from UiT.
