Oncology and Pathology

Faculty of Medicine | Lund University

Welcome to the Division of Oncology and Pathology!

The Division of Oncology and Pathology houses several research groups within the two main branches Canceromics and Translational Oncology and Pathology. Through a multidisciplinary approach, scientists, health care personnel, technologists, and informaticians endeavor to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and care of cancer patients. Our shared goals include:

  • International-quality research and collaboration in studies of a variety of malignancies, e.g. breast cancer, gastrointestinal cancer, melanoma, urological cancers, sarcoma, lymphoma, gynecological cancers, head-and neck tumors, brain tumors as well as neurodegenerative diseases
  • Translational bridging from basic science and epidemiology to clinical application catalyzed by lab facilities joined to the clinic
  • High-quality education and research training that prepares students for successful careers
  • Continuous development of a scientific milieu in which researchers benefit from population-based registries, in-house biobanks linked to clinical data, and strategic investments in new technologies
  • Recognition as an attractive and inspiring work environment characterized by curiosity, collaboration, and collegiality
