Via Gattamelata, 64 - 35128 Padova



The Experimental and Translational Basic Oncology Unit carries out molecular diagnostics and research in the IOV laboratories located in the Padua Research Tower and at the Padua headquarters. The main activity of the laboratories is the characterization of molecular alterations with a predictive value of response in the plasma or tissue of patients with lung tumors (liquid biopsy).

Tests performed:

  • Search for EGFR gene mutations
  • PIK3CA gene mutation search test and NTRK1-3, ALK, ROS1, RET, MET gene alteration test
  • Comprehensive Genomic Profiling (CGP)
  • Search for somatic mutations

Starting from 2018 in these laboratories, latest generation sequencing methods (NGS) have been adopted which, alongside the classical methods of molecular genetics, allow to improve the diagnostic activity and to deepen the understanding in the field of cancer genomics. The quality of the aforementioned analyzes is monitored and guaranteed through the use of internal quality controls and participation in national and international (EMQN) external quality assessment programs (VEQ).

The Unit actively participates in the regional Molecular Tumor Board and in breast, melanoma and sarcomas MDTs.
