Group for Innovative Cancer TreatmentDivision of Pathology
About the Division
Our team’s goal is to explore the cause of cancer, and to develop novel diagnostic and therapeutic methods for cancer patients. Therefore, team members are responsible for basic and translational researches of cancer biology and cancer treatment fields. To this end, we build hypothesis through both pathological samples and clinicopathological information. Since the in vitro and in vivo models mimicking human cancer tissue are required to solve molecular mechanisms, we develop novel in vitro models and examine whether our hypothesis are correct or not. We must further confirm our hypothesis by final validation studies using human samples.
