Leithner Group Cancer Metabolism

Group leader: Katharina Leithner, MD, PhD


Our research group, established in 2016, focusses on lung cancer metabolism from a basic and translational research perspective. Within highly collaborative and integrative projects we explore the complex metabolic aberrations in lung cancer cells. Funded by third-party projects (FWF Austrian Science Fund and others) our group pursues the ultimate goal to identify potentially targetable metabolic vulnerabilities in cancer cells.
