NORLUX represents a state-of-the art multidisciplinary research group with a critical mass of competitive scientists in neuro-oncology research.
We aim to improve the treatment options for malignant brain tumors, with a focus on diffuse gliomas. With a radically translational approach to research, we work with patient samples and innovative patient-derived preclinical model systems that recapitulate the patient tumor. Our research investigates the cellular and molecular basis of gliomas, their capacity to invade the normal brain and escape therapy. Special areas of interests are tumor plasticity, tumor heterogeneity, tumor metabolism, immuno-oncology and pharmacogenomics.
