Forskningsbeskrivning

  • My research is focused on tumor microenvironment in gynecological cancers
    such as uterine sarcomas, ovarian and cervical cancers to understand the
    tissue responses such as wound healing or inflammation created by the
    surgery. Furthermore, I use 3D ex vivo models by using cancer cells, tissue
    and immune cells to mimic tumor immune microenvironment to investigate the
    mechanisms behind the tissue responses which affects cancer invasion,
    metastasis and chemoresistance. I also focus on Bio-imaging and analysis by
    using several different software in manual or automated manners.
