Main fields of research 

Our main interest is the non invasive diagnosis of skin cancer, especially malignant melanoma. We use established techniques such as dermoscopy as well as new techniques including in vivo laser scanning microscopy. Due to different international research collaborations our patients benefit directly from the latest technological developments.

Main fileds of research
The team has established a world class skin cancer center providing the best clinical care connected to translation and clinical research. We intensively investigate the immune biology of cutaneous lymphomas, cutaneous melanoma and epithelial skin cancers. Based on the microenvironment of these tumors, we have established immune interventions in cell cultures and animal models. Translational research applies this new knowledge to our patients in order to provide effective treatment with best quality of life.
