HERCULES is a research project focused on the most common and lethal sub-type of ovarian cancer, high-grade serous ovarian cancer. Thanks to funding from the European Commission, we have researchers from Finland, Sweden, Italy and France working on finding out as much as possible about these tumors and possible ways to treat them, especially after the tumors have become resistant to current treatments. You can read all about it on our official website here.

The purpose of this blog is to give you a peek on what is going on behind the scenes, for example, what goes on during a researcher’s or a doctor’s day, an explanation of the state-of-the-art methods we’re using, or introductions to our latest results. This blog is meant for anyone interested in the topic, no specialist background needed, but hopefully interesting to other researchers as well. Enjoy!
