Title

Importance of germline genetics for susceptibility and prognosis of prostate and testicular cancer

About the speaker 

Fredrik Wiklund is an Associate Professor in epidemiology at MEB. His research is centered on investigating the influence of hereditary factors on prostate and testicular cancer.

Abstract 

I will give an update on the role of germline genetics in the development, aggressiveness, and prognosis of prostate and testicular cancer. Examining the hereditary factors associated with these malignancies may facilitate our understanding of their underlying mechanisms and identify individuals at increased risk. I will summarize recent results within the field and present our ongoing studies.

Join the faculty event in Wargentin! After the seminar, the faculty lunch will be served in Ljusgården.
