About Mielgo lab

We are a dedicated and international research team and we are passionate about what we do!

Our main goals are:

  • To understand the complex interactions between tumour cells and stromal cells, in order to find better treatments for cancer.
  • To train and inspire the next generation of cancer researchers.

We believe in and support:

  • A collaborative working environment
  • Diversity (gender, cultural…) because we believe diversity is the key to creativity, and creativity is essential to research.
