Future goals

• Building a human 3D TME matrix based in vitro models using human leiomyoma discs and its soluble matrix Myogel to provide a better model for “personalized medicine “oral cancer chemo-radiation drug testing. • Resolve molecular mechanisms in oral cancer TME in carcinogenesis for future diagnostics and therapeutics. • Gain knowledge in the role of extracellular vesicles in oral cancer, and elucidate their potential use as biomarkers and in therapeutics. • Further development of the myoma invasion models. • Identify novel, clinically relevant prognostic markers for OTSCC diagnostics in international multicenter studies. • Resolve effects of OTSCC irradiation in TME of OTSCC.
