Areas of Interest

The Merajver research group is devoted to both research projects and clinical projects. The main goal of the research projects is to understanding the molecular genetics and associated functions of very aggressive breast cancer types. The primary areas of focus are systems biology, mathematical oncology, biophysics, cell biology, genetics, and drug development. In addition, a primary goal of the clinical work is to prevent breast cancer. To achieve this goal, clinical research is done intensively on lifestyle factors and study medicines that may help prevent many thousands of cases of breast cancer.
