Hematology and oncology

There are over 200 cancers that affect children. In Finland, around 150 new cases are diagnosed each year. Leukemia is the most common form of cancer in childhood followed by the tumors of the central nervous system. Although the prognosis of children with cancer has markedly improved during the last decades, there are still many tumor types with poor prognosis. Various treatments cause both short- and long-term side-effects, and therefore new treatments with higher specificity towards cancerous cells are needed. Within the hemato-oncology section, we are performing basic research on pediatric leukemias and brain tumors, and aim at studying the mechanisms of tumorigenesis and developing new strategies for treatment of patients.
