The analytical unit of the School of Pharmacy offers analytical chemistry method development and analysis services for the researchers and our collaborators in mass spectrometry, magnetic resonance spectroscopy and inorganic chemistry.

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 ...

CROSSHARES consortium - hare research

Our research group is a part of the CROSSHARES consortium, studying the biological consequences of hybridisation between mountain hare and brown hare, broadly utilising state-of-the-art methods in genomics and molecular biology.

Epigenomics of vitamin D

The scientific interest of our team is on mechanisms of gene regulation and its impact on major common diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis and cancer. Our investigations use methods of molecular biology, bioinformatics and systems biology.

Immuno-Ophthalmology

Inflammation is associated with various chronic diseases many of which have insufficient treatment options. Along with inflammatory signaling, we study more broadly cellular events in order to reveal molecular mechanisms and dysfunctionalities behind the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases.
