Latonen Lab - Cancer stress biology

We study the molecular, cellular and tissue mechanisms that contribute to the increased ability of cancer cells to tolerate stress. We focus on the molecular mechanisms behind the different capacities of cancer and neuronal cells to deal with protein and RNA aggregates, and the ability of cancer ...

Molecular Pathology and Genetics of Cancer

We study the etiology and pathogenesis of malignant diseases with a special emphasis on the histopathologic, molecular pathologic and genetic/genomic factors. Profound collaboration between several research groups at the UEF and Kuopio University Hospital (KUH) as well as with our national and in...

Redox signaling (Anna-Liisa Levonen group)

Nrf2 is a transcription factor mainly involved in combating cellular stress caused by reactive oxygen and nitrogen species. However, Nrf2 is also involved in cancer and cardiometabolic diseases, making it an essential drug target.

Quantitative cell biology

01.10.2020 -
In the Quantitative Cell Biology laboratory, we study the biology of cells through the prism of quantitative sciences. We use cutting edge quantitative bio-imaging tools to count biomolecules such as proteins or mRNAs, measure their interactions, clustering or quantify their motion in live cells ...
