ZYTO investigates radiation induced chromosome and DNA damage in cell systems and human tumors. The focus is on mechanisms associated with radiation-induced carcinogenesis and radiation sensitivity of tumor cells, aiming at the identification of radiation biomarkers and the stratification of personalized radiation therapy.

Our Focus

  • The Research Unit Radiation Cytogenetics (ZYTO) investigates radiation-induced chromosome and DNA damage in cell systems and human tumours. The focus is on clarifying the mechanisms associated with radiation-induced carcinogenesis and radiation sensitivity of tumour cells. The aim of this research is to find biomarkers associated with radiation-induced tumours in order to develop personalized radiation therapy for the stratification of patients. ZYTO is a part of the Department of Radiation Sciences (DRS).
