Our group was among the first to apply high throughput technology to the analysis of gastrointestinal tumors. One main focus of our research is on using array/microarray technology for expression and genomic profiling analyses of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). This forms the basis for the development of novel molecular diagnostic procedures as well as the functional analysis of candidate genes and the characterisation of new therapeutic targets in pancreatic cancer. Of special interest to us is the characterisation of the crosstalk between cancer cells and stromal components in pancreatic tumors.
