About our group
The aim of Dr. Zuzana Keckesova’s lab is to identify and characterize new tumor suppressor pathways and circuitries in human cells with the ultimate goal of translating this new knowledge into therapeutic use. Dr. Keckesova’s lab is researching tissues/cell types that rarely undergo tumorigenesis. These are the cellular models that already found a way to battle cancer and we intend to extract this knowledge from them. These studies will uncover novel tumor supressor circuitries that can be used in our fight against cancer. The scope of our work includes in vitro, in vivo and clinical studies in a biology, chemistry, biochemistry and biophysics background with powerful collaborations set up all over the world.
