Centre for Cancer Biomarkers - ELSA research
Researchers at SVT are leading the research group on ELSA (Ethical, Legal and Social Aspects of new technology) at the Centre for Cancer Biomarkers (CCBIO) at UiB.
Centre for Cancer Biomarkers (CCBIO) is a Centre of Excellence at the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry, University of Bergen.
The center is working on new cancer biomarkers and targeted therapy, and has particular focus on mechanisms that show how cancer cells are affected by the microenvironment in the tumors, and what significance this has for cancer proliferation and poor prognosis.
CCBIO’s research group on ELSA (Ethical, Legal and Social Aspects of new technology) is led by a SVT team consisting of professor Roger Strand and researcher Anne Bremer.
