My main scientific interests focus on the development of strategies to target epidermoylsis bullosa-associated skin cancer. Herein our primary goal is to improve overall survival in patients suffering from squamous cell carcinoma using antidiabetic drugs, antibiotics as well as special diets. Furthermore, we evaluate demographic data and incidence of tumor development in EB.
