Lab Profile

Division Applied Bioinformatics

We are developing bioinformatics methods with a particular focus on precision oncology, and to understand cancer initiation, progression and response to therapy. We use single-cell analysis to better understand cancer heterogeneity, study the relation between normal and malignant hematopoiesis, and to characterize the tumor microenvironment.
