Genitourinary Cancer

The Research Group on Genitourinary Cancer is a research group of Institut Hospital del Mar d'Investigacions Mèdiques affiliated to Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) led by Dr. Josep Lloreta. The group focuses on identifying genetic signatures that could be involved in the transition from a hypothetical latent to a clinically significant phase, to better understand the natural history of prostatic carcinoma and to design adequate treatment strategies for each patient.

The main research lines are:

  • Study of genetic expression profiles
  • Molecular study of selected genes
