Centre for Cancer Biomarkers (CCBIO) is a Centre of Excellence at the Faculty of Medicine, 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. See the 1 minute video CCBIO in a Nutshell. Centre Director is Lars A. Akslen, Department of Clinical Medicine. Read about our research and activities in the CCBIO Annual Report.
