Brief presentation of the institution

 Department of Oncology at Herlev Hospital is a leading and one of the largest cancer departments in Denmark.

 More than 400 are employed in our department. All are having a solid and updated expertise in cancer treatment. We offer radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and electrochemotherapy is a standard treatment.

On an annual basis we have 120,000 consultations and about 4,400 new cancer patients are referred to our department each year.

 

Main Electroporation related topics

We are a cross-disciplinary group performing in vitro and in vivo work, as well as field calculations and electrode development. We are part of the Department of Oncology at Copenhagen University Hospital Herlev, and are committed to bringing drug and gene delivery by electrotransfer to the patients through clinical trials.

We have also been part of the ESOPE project and use electrochemotherapy for the treatment of cutaneous malignant tumors as a standard of care. Patients are referred for this treatment from other hospitals.

We have taken part in forming the INSPECT database, and we perform training of doctors wanting to work with electrochemotherapy.

 

Main Electroporation related research techniques and equipment

We have access to a fully equipped molecular laboratory, animal facilities, and software and expertise for field calculations, as well as collaborations regarding imaging, e.g. MRI.

We are part of a Department of Oncology, and many of the group members are doctors, which enables us to carry out clinical trials within drug and gene delivery for use in oncology.

 

Research topics, techniques and equipment not related to Electroporation

 We have a number of electroporators in the department, as well as laboratory, animal, and clinical trial facilities.

 This allows a number of projects within drug and gene delivery to tissues, with the aim of treating cancer and serious chronic diseases.

 

Brief information on available facilites

 

 We have office space, laboratory facilities, animal research facilities, and facilities for clinical trials and treatment of patients using electroporation based technologies.
