’The need for better therapeutic options for brain cancers is very big’

The focus of oncologist Anders Wittrup’s research is so called RNA therapeutics and how they can be developed into cancer therapies. “We have a special focus on brain cancers for which there today are very poor treatment options.”

Anders Wittrup is a resident in oncology at Skåne University Hospital and a researcher at Wallenberg Centre for Molecular Medicine (WCMM). In 2022, every week a researcher working at WCMM at Lund University and Skåne University Hospital is presented. In the video, Anders Wittrup shares more about his research.
