About the Research Group

The research group Experimental Oncology at the Division of Translational Cancer Research, led by Professor Kristian Pietras, is driven by the belief that a tumor is a communicating organ consisting of several cell types that jointly develop into the deadly disease cancer. Tumors are heterogeneous and contain malignant cells with different proliferative and metastatic potential. Although it is a well-established fact that the microenvironment of the tumor strongly contributes to the growth and development of a tumor, we do not know much about heterogeneity within cell types in the tumor stroma. Our strategy combines high-definition studies of basic biological concepts with the use of advanced mouse models of cancer and exclusive clinical patient materials to study the microenvironment in cancer initiation, progression and resistance to treatment. Here, you can read more about our research.

We follow Lund University's rules and guidelines regarding work environment and values. We listen to and value everyone's opinions and try to weigh in different positions before decisions are made.
