Scientific Scope

The research group of Frederik Damm focuses on genetic events defining early steps during leukemo-/ lymphomagenesis using several molecular biology techniques. Combinations of various sequencing technologies using bulk and single-cell approaches help to develop novel models of precision oncology.  A broad national and international collaborating network supports investigations of rare tumor entities and/or molecularly defined subgroups.
