Center for Translational Research and Molecular Biology of Cancer was founded in 2010 after the reorganization of the Research Division of Institute of Oncology in Gliwice.
Research interests. Scientific activities of the Center focus on research in the field of the molecular biology of cancer and translation of research results into clinical practice (i.e., translational research in short). The general goals of the Center are focused on the bases of novel methods of molecular diagnostics and anticancer therapies. Specifically, research topics include: (i) genetic risk factor in cancer predisposition, (ii) novel prognostic and predictive markers for cancer therapy; (iii) genomic, proteomic and metabolome signatures for cancer identification and classification; (iv) pharmacology and biology of novel anticancer factors; (v) novel vectors and strategies of drug delivery. Another group of basic research projects is related mostly to molecular responses to cellular stress, including crosstalk between transcription and regulatory networks active in cancer cells.
