Research focus for the FOR2036 initiative:



The scheme of the mitochondrial apoptosis pathway activation illustrates the various levels on which the projects of the FOR2036 Research Group are focused (Projects 1-9).
The FOR2036 Research Group aims to investigate their research goals in the different projects using innovative tools and technologies covering a range of scientific fields and subjects, from biophysics to patient samples.
