In order to achieve this we will require a much deeper understanding about the different factors that contribute to the course of disease between patients with the same disease such as:

Environmental. Genetic. Molecular. Environmental. Genetic. Molecular.

Our current research projects aim at developing technologies that should enable us to adress these questions, resulting in solutions that can one day support treatment decisions.
