Research description

By using a combination of biochemistry, metabolomics, and systems biology we investigate the role of altered metabolism in cancer with the aim to understand how metabolic transformation regulates the process of tumorigenesis. Our aim is to exploit these findings to establish novel therapeutic strategies and diagnostic tools for cancer
