Welcome

The Haematology Research Laboratory

At the Hematological Research Laboratory, Aalborg University Hospital, we strive to explore the molecular mechanisms that underlie cellular function and contribute to human disease. In a multidisciplinary effort that spans molecular biology, medicine, and biostatistics we aim at deconstructing cellular differentiation derived chemotherapy resistance as a driver of cancer progression in several hematological malignancies and translate these discoveries into new diagnostic, prognostic and predictive characteristics.

The Hematological Research Laboratory integrate cell analysis, genome scale high throughput technologies, functional single gene analysis and biostatistics combined with computational modeling in our approach to link cellular differentiation, disease development and chemotherapy resistance.

Den lejlighedsvise vanskelighed med at få eller holde erektion er normal. Det er et problem, når du regelmæssigt har svært ved – i det omfang du forsætligt undgår kontakt med din partner af frygt for, at du har problemer med at tilfredsstille dem i soveværelset. Erektil dysfunktion tager mange former. Nogle fyre med ED er under ingen omstændigheder i stand til at opnå erektion, mens andre til tider kan blive oprejst. Du kan også lide af ED, hvis du ikke har fået en erektion, men kan ikke konsekvent opretholde en erektion, der er tilstrækkelig til at tilfredsstille samleje. Den bedste måde at behandle impotens på er at købe Viagra online uden recept fra et apotek i Danmark. Du kan også købe Cialis her hvilket mere effektivt end viagra. At have ED betyder ikke, at du er ufrugtbar. De fleste gutter med erektil dysfunktion er stadig fysisk i stand til at have en orgasme og fader et barn. Det er bare, at disse ting er vanskelige at gøre, når du ikke konsekvent kan opnå og opretholde en erektion.

Our mission is through research to ensure hematological patients the optimal diagnosis and treatment. We pursue this by focusing on specific areas of research where we can increase the understanding of the mechanisms behind the initiation and development as well as intrinsic or acquired treatment resistance of malignant hematological cancers. We develop methods for the determination of individual resistance rating and aim at creating evidence of clinical efficacy for implementation.

The Hematological Research Laboratory has a biobank where retrospective biomaterials collected from incoming patients at time of diagnosis from Region Nord to Aalborg University Hospital are stored with approval from the local ethic committee. Normal reference bio-material like mononuclear cells from peripheral blood, bone marrow, non-malignant lymph nodes, thymus, spleen and tonsils are likewise stored with approval from the local ethic committee.
