E-mail: bag13638@iif.hu
Tel:
+36-1-2104411, +36-1-4591500 ext. 56331, 56336, 56217
Institute: Department of Pharmacodynamics

Research topic

The research group investigates the neurobiological pathways that play a role in the onset of depression as a result of environmental factors, as well as in the mechanism of action of antidepressant therapy. Genomic, transcriptomic, pharmacological and imaging procedures are used in the course of the research. The goal of the research is the identification of new drug targets and the improvement of personalised treatment options.

Molecular Oncology Research Group

Leader:    Prof. József Tímár, M.D., Ph.D., D.Sc.
E-mail: jtimar@gmail.com
Tel: +36-1-215-6921 ext. 53451
Institute: 2nd Department of Pathology

Research topic

Molecular pathology, metastasis, experimental cancer research, microenvironment. Cancer cells as well as their interactions with the host are key determinants of the outcome of the malignant diseases. Molecular processes during the malignant transformation of normal cells are well described but those which are behind the metastatisation are much less although this is which determines the prognosis of the disease. This group has a long track record of metastasis research based on what it is aimed at identifying genetic and molecular mechanisms of local dissemination and metastatization, cancer specific stromal alterations and tumor vascularisation. Research is focused on the most prevalent human solid cancers (breast-, lung- and colorecatl cancers), on those which can be considered orphan (melanoma, liver cancer or kindney cancer) and the unique hematological malignancies. Major aims of these translational studies are the development of novel diagnostic, prognostic and predictive markers to promote precision medicine.

E-mail: tulassay.tivadar@med.semmelweis-univ.hu
Tel: +36-1-303-6077
Clinic: 1st Department of Paediatrics

Research topic

The research group aims to provide a molecular-level description of the fibrotic process of chronic diseases both localised to specific cells and affecting the entire person. The researchers primarily examine those common mechanisms that cause chronic deviation bound to the endothelium. They also pay particular attention to epithelial mesenchymal transformation. Translational research areas extend to the study of hypoxic injury, metabolic changes, disease processes affecting the cardiovascular system, and oncological changes.

Duration: 01.07.2012 – 30.06.2017
