Epithelial Carcinogenesis

The Research Group on Epithelial Carcinogenesis is a research group of the Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Oncológicas (CNIO) affiliated to Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) led by Dr. Francisco Real. The group  focuses on understanding the molecular/ cellular mechanisms involved in pancreatic and bladder cancer through a disease-oriented approach. The group is interested in the genetic susceptibility to cancer and in developing better molecular tools to predict patient outcome or response to therapy

The main research lines are:

  • Pancreas cancer molecular pathophysiology
  • Urothelial cell carcinoma (UCC) genetics and biology
