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 Modeling and Drug Design Research Group

Our molecular modeling and computer-aided drug design (CADD) group at School of Pharmacy in Kuopio applies various computational chemistry methods to speed up identification of new drug candidates, and to improve their properties. Our group utilizes both structure-based and ligand-based methods.

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...
