Description of the Research

We study the essential outcomes of cancer cell signaling by utilizing a range of proteomics, single-cell omics, and genome editing techniques. Current projects focus on the regulation of rRNA synthesis, proteogenomic analyses of head and neck cancers, targeted therapy resistance in melanoma, and acid-labile phosphorylation.

Our group operates in Turku Proteomics facility. More information about the people and the mass spectrometry core facility can be found here: Turku Proteomics Facility
