Kiel Onkology Network (KON)

Kiel Oncology Network (KON) links the research activities of basic and clinically-orientated oncology researchers. As such, KON incorporates expertise from different specialities involved in cancer research and care, including tumour biology, genetics and epigenetics, immunology, pharmacology, pathology, structural biology as well as modern medical imaging. By utilizing such a multidisciplinary approach KON's vision is to gain a comprehensive understanding of the important steps in tumour evolution, as well as resistance mechanisms in cancer treatment. This knowledge could provide a basis for the development of innovative diagnosis and treatment strategies, to decisively improve the prognosis for and survival of cancer patients.
