Genome Instability and Cancer Team

Professor Wojciech Niedzwiedz’s team investigates how cells repair damaged DNA with the highest possible fidelity in order to prevent catastrophic changes to their genome. The goal of this research is to understand some of the most fundamental processes in cell physiology and how these differ in cancer cells.

Team Leader

Professor Wojciech Niedzwiedz investigates the mechanisms by which cells detect and repair damaged DNA, and how dysregulation of DNA damage responses leads to genomic instability, cancer-prone and premature aging syndromes. Professor Niedzwiedz heads the Genome Instability and Cancer group.
