Risk stratification for individualized interventions

Risk stratification for individualized interventions

Research theme

OBJECTIVES The main objective of this theme is identification and use of patient characteristics and markers of biological and pathogenic processes in order individualize interventions. Our strategy is to develop these strategies from bench-to-bedside.

Our definition of  a “marker” is a measurable indicator in our living surrounding (exposome), in tissues (including imaging) or in liquid biopsies which serve as an indicator for risk, prognosis, treatment efficacy and toxicity of cancer.
