Cancer Center of Eastern Finland - CCEF

Research group

Cancer Center of Eastern Finland - CCEF - is an alliance of research groups extending from the fields of basic molecular science to Kuopio University Hospital clinics.

CCEF includes strong research infrastructure, wide-ranging national and foreign networking as well as top level scientific research. It consists of five working groups aiming at enhanced patient cure and survival.

Focusing on cancer genetics, cancer epigenetics, interaction between cancer cell and tumor stroma, detection of metastatic tumors and identification of novel invasion/metastasis associated molecules and clinical implementation and biobanking, the working groups comprise distinct but mutually reinforcing entities.
