Urologic Oncology / Digital Pathology

The junior working group "Urologic Oncology / Digital Pathology" under the guidance of Dr. Yuri Tolkach has research interests in following areas:

  1. Computational pathology and artificial intelligence - based methods for diagnostic and prognostic applications (including correlation to radiology and nuclear medicine imaging).
  2. Molecular characterization of the uro-oncological diseases.
  3. Genetic evolution of primary and metastatic prostate cancer, including mathematical modelling (in cooperation with Florian Kreten and Anton Bovier, Hausdorff Center for Mathematics, University of Bonn, Bonn, Germany).
