Jan Karlseder, PhDSalk Professor Jan Karlseder
Combating the Earliest Stages in Cancer Development

Cancer cells evolve from healthy, normal cells that overcome proliferative boundaries, which would usually prevent them from becoming immortal. Understanding these early stages of oncogenic transformation is essential if we aim to prevent cancer from happening in the first place. Karlseder will talk about research on how cells overcome proliferative boundaries and about strategies to prevent them from doing so.
