Excellent foundational research combined with innovative technology

TranslaTUM aims to combine the discovery culture of biology with aim of application, typical for the engineering sciences to solve quantitative problems of health and develop cutting-edge methods for earlier diagnosis and efficient prevention and treatment. Groundbreaking basic and applied interdisciplinary research will promote technological ability, increase our knowledge of cancer cell biology, and develop new concepts on the path from traditional biological observations to solutions that foster precise, personalized medicine. TranslaTUM focuses on three research pillars:


  • Research signal transduction and interaction between tumor cells and the immune system
  • Identification of target structures and molecules for diagnosis and treatment, and the design of new treatment paradigms that address complex systems
  • Innovation of novel sensing, imaging and analysis techniques that will lead to earlier diagnosis of cancer and promote precision medicine
