Approved project with German Cancer Research Center

Members of the Department of Molecular Biology received the project "Targeted rewriting of epigenetic marks as a new therapeutic approach in triple negative breast cancer cells" in collaboration with colleagues from the German Cancer Research Center funded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation for 2 years. This is also the topic of the doctoral thesis of Ana Sarić, a research trainee at the Department of Molecular Biology.

Using BRCA1 methylation (BRCAness) as a predictor for therapeutic response to PARP inhibitors and other therapeutics, will allow direct triple negative breast cancer treatment without previous screening for BRCA1 mutations. This methodological setup will facilitate the faster decision toward the use of newest medicaments to increase cells’ susceptibility to apoptosis and cancer cell diminishment.
