Molecular epidemiology of brain tumours

The aetiology of brain tumours is largely unknown, and others and we have discovered that there is a familial aggregation of brain tumours.

Our research group is working to discover genes and other etiological factors that are important for the development of brain tumours being co principal investigator for the GLIOGENE consortium including 14 centres internationally.
We also investigate how the aetiological factors relate to the tumour phenotypes leading the brain tumour initiative with Uppsala in the UCAN consortium.
To explore novel genes and biomarkers associated with different brain tumours and other tumour types we work as coordinator for brain tumours in the prospectively collected cohort, Northern Sweden Health and disease study including more than 100 000 unique individuals

The research group is also working on studies in other tumor areas such as colorectal cancer, lymphoma and breast cancer, especially regarding hereditary cancer and biomarkers for etiology and early detection
