Molecular Endocrine Pathology
We focus on delivering improved diagnostic and prognostic tools for tumors derived from endocrine tissues such as the thyroid and parathyroid glands in the neck as well as for abdominal neoplasias such as adrenal and neuroendocrine tumors.
By utilizing modern genetic, epigenetic and proteomic methods together with conventional light microscopy and histopathology, candidate markers will be applied on clinical tumor material for the improved recognition of malignant disease and poorer patient outcome. Furthermore, the physiology of normal and hyperfunctioning endocrine glands is also studied. The ventures are systematized as continuing cooperation projects with researchers at Cancer Centrum Karolinska, as well as the endocrine surgery division at the Karolinska University Hospital in Solna and the Yale Endocrine Neoplasia Laboratory at Yale University, CT, USA.
