Laboratoire de Biologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire du Cancer (LBMCC), Luxembourg

LBMCC is a private cancer research lab in Luxembourg with a team of 10 researchers dedicated to basic and translational cancer research about :

  • Cell death modalities;
  • Hematopoiesis, anemia, inflammation;
  • Epigenetics;
  • Identification / validation of biomarkers for prognosis and therapeutic response.
  • The lab’s working language is English.
