This dual training has equipped him for developing translational research. Since 2002 he has lead a research unit focusing on new diagnostic prognostic and predictive resistance markers including the development of new technics for assessing circulating tumor DNA mainly in colon cancers. They have now integrated all these biomarkers to develop precision medicine in colon cancer patients.
