UKÄ subject classification

  • Cancer and Oncology
  • Cell and Molecular Biology


  • Cell division, tubulins, SADB


The group’s interest is to find novel target proteins that are involved in cell cycle regulation and whose activities result in cancer development. The biological platforms that we are applying are cell lines, primary cell cultures and tumors. To study the processes of cell division, we are applying state-of-the-art imaging techniques and modern genetic tools. Our focus is to understand the intracellular cell signaling mechanisms that are involved in carciogenesis. SADB Kinases and gamma-tubulin: Until now, our research has been focused on the function of two groups of proteins, the Ser/Thr kinases named SADB and gamma-tubulin. The lab is located at Malmö's university hospital. The unit is well equipped in a highly dynamic research community.
