Research lines

  • Molecular studies in embryonic and tumor cells: applications to pharmacogenomics

    Comparison of microRNA patterns in embryonic and tumor tissues, with a view to selecting more specific treatments.

  • Effects of synchrotron radiation upon the neoplastic cell

    Carried out jointly with UAB, comparison is made of the biological action of synchrotron radiation with conventional X-rays used in radiotherapy.

  • Breast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

    Tumour uptake and diffusion to predict pathological response to primary systemic treatment in breast cancer.

  • Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) techniques

    Studies of perfusion, diffusion and spectroscopy applied to the staging and treatment

    monitoring of brain and head and neck tumours.

  • Scintigraphic detection of the sentinel node and hybrid tracers in radioguided surgery

    Applied in different tumours to avoid unnecessary lymphadenectomies. Radioguided surgery approaches with new tracers and methodologies.

  • Positron Emission Tomography/Computed Tomography (PET/CT)

    For the staging and control of treatment response in different types of tumors.

  • Study of bacterial radiosensitivity

    In E. coli, S. epidermidis and S. aureus.
