About the Speaker(s)
Professor, Stefan Pfister
Division of Pediatric Neurooncology
Our group aims to bridge the gap between generating genomic screening data as well as faithful models for preclinical drug testing and exploiting these data for the sake of our patients. The first goal includes the identification, validation and clinical application of prognostic and predictive biomarkers in different childhood brain tumors, including genome, transcriptome, and epigenome analysis, and integrative bioinformatics approaches. The second major focus involves the generation of suitable in vitro and in vivo models for systematic pre-clinical testing of novel smart drugs, often in combination with established cytotoxic drugs, chemotherapy or immunotherapy.
