Focused on

Squamous cell carcinoma of the skin

Main fields of research

Our research activities are focused on squamous cell carcinoma of the skin. We have a special interest in organ transplant recipients as a high-risk population for the development of squamous cell carcinoma of the skin stemming from the combined effects of immunosuppression and ultraviolet light. Our research is thus focused on inflammation fighting skin cancer or contributing to the cutaneous carcinogenesis as well as on the role of UV damage in particular in conjunction with medication.
