Arbeitsgruppe Univ.-Prof. Dr. Roland Rad

Roland Rad ist der Direktor des Instituts für Molekulare Onkologie und Funktionelle Genomik an der TU München (www.imo.med.tum.de).


Unsere Arbeitsgruppe beschäftigt sich mit der Untersuchung molekularer und translationaler Aspekte der Krebsentstehung mit Hilfe von Mausmodellen. Ein Schwerpunkt ist die Entwicklung von PiggyBac transposon-basierten Technologien für insertionale Mutagenese.
