Laboratory of Macromolecular Cancer Therapeutics (MMCT)

Research mission

A major focus of research at our Laboratory of Macromolecular Cancer Therapeutics (MMCT) is the development of nucleic acid based drugs for the treatment of pathologies like cancer. By using relevant oncological models, the carriers are evaluated both in vitro and in vivo. In close collaboration with clinical research groups the application for distinct tumor entities is optimized.
