Description of the research topic:

The research topic focuses on the pathologic features which can predict disease outcome in malignant tumours, especially in solid tumours. Although the main interest is in breast and colorectal carcinoma, other tumours are also included as subjects of studies. The factors relevant to prognosis include classical pathological features of the neoplasms, but also features which can be studied by different molecular methods (e.g. mutation of oncogenes or tumour suppressor genes). Besides prognostic factors, the study of factors reflecting treatment effectiveness (i.e. predictive factors) are also included in the topic.
