Assistant Professor Rasmus Siersbæk has headed a research group at SDU focused on understanding breast cancer biology since 2019. He received his PhD from SDU in 2012, and then stayed on as a postdoc at SDU until 2015, where he went to Cambridge (UK) to do a 4-year postdoc in the laboratory of Dr. Jason Carroll at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute.

One of the major clinical challenges in breast cancer is the metastatic spread of cancer cells from the primary tumour to other organs (e.g. liver, lung, brain and bone), where they form secondary tumours resulting in incurable disease. Research in Rasmus’ group aims to understand the mechanisms controlling this process including the role of the tumour microenvironment. He focuses particularly on transcription factors and their associated co-regulatory proteins using an integrated omics-approach involving both genomics and proteomics.
