FOCUS Programme

Laboratory of Genomic Medicine was established and equipped thanks to the financial support granted within the FOCUS Programme by the Foundation for Polish Science.

During implementation of the project „The role of microRNAs in thyroid cancer”, we have been studying the role of microRNAs deregulated in thyroid cancer, in particular the mechanism in which a polymorphism within a microRNA-146a precursor increases the susceptibility to development of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC).
