The Austrian programme on genomic research, GEN-AU got involved in several transnational research projects. Within GEN-AU the project CANCERMOTYSIS focuses on new therapeutic options for advanced stomach cancer. The Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research together with the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research promote that project, which is coordinated by Julian Mattes from the Software Competence Center Hagenberg (SCCH).

Systems biology

„We execute novel analysis in the field of systems biology, with the aim to declare the efficiency of a therapeutic for stomach carcinoma”, states Julian Mattes. By means of therapeutic antibodies the researches attempt to block the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). This is a protein, which activates the cell metabolism and is underrepresented in the tumor cells of the stomach carcinoma.

Transnational cooperation

CANCERMOTYSIS is a joint project between academic and industrial partner from Austria and Germany. About 17 researcher work within that project. Systems biology is a growing aspect in the field biological research. An interdisciplinary approach combines mathematical concepts, computer aided operations und biological experiments.
