tumor classification, preclinical drug testing

My research focuses on the genetic and epigenetic characterization and classification of childhood brain tumors by applying 'omic' methods (including single cell and spatial resolution), the development of faithful models and functional validation of findings, and the preclinical testing of new treatment options using these models. In all my activities, translating novel findings into a clinical context is of highest priority.
