The research group has several research activities related to prostate cancer and imaging (1) Time-resolved fluorescence imaging for a quantitative and specific detection of antigens, (2) immunohistochemistry on prostate TMAs, (3) Confocal laser scanning microscopy based on immunoflourescence of cancer cells (4) In vivo imaging for immunodetection of tumour cells in xenografts and metastasis in mice, (5) In situ-hybridisation for detection of mRNA in cells/ FFPE sections and (6) incorporation of tissue marker discoveries in clinical prediction models in prostate cancer patients
