The laboratory is developing a new method of personalized drug therapy for cancer patients, which includes establishment of a three-dimensional culture of tumor organoids, followed by a personalized test of chemotherapeutic and targeted drugs to determine the most effective therapy for each individual patient.
We maintain cooperation with National Medical Research Radiological Center, Shemyakin–Ovchinnikov Institute of bioorganic chemistry RAS, Scientific and Technical Center BioClinicum and University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf.
The role of ELOVL5 and IGFBP6 genes in modulating the sensitivity of breast cancer cells to ferroptosis
Researchers from the Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology at the Higher School of Economics conducted a joint study with colleagues from National Medical Research Radiological Centre of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, Center for Digital Biodesign and Personalized Health Care (Sechenov University) and Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences, dedicated to the study of the link between low expression of the IGFBP6, ELOVL5 genes and lipid metabolism in breast cancer cells. The results of the study will be published in the journal Frontiers in Molecular Biosciences.
The International Laboratory of Microphysiological Systems Held an Online Сonference With International Participation
