Research work

Pr Marc Sanson’s team focuses on biology of primary brain tumors in adults, mainly gliomas and primary central nervous system lymphoma. Indeed, these tumors are the most prevalent primary brain cancers in adults. Three major goals are aimed by the team: • Identification of clinically relevant molecular biomarker through genotype/phenotype correlations; • A better understanding of molecular and cellular abnormalities driving brain tumors oncogenesis; • Evaluation of novel therapeutic strategies in preclinical models of glioblastoma (GlioTex Project);
