Robin Mjelle

Department of Cancer Research and Molecular Medicine, Norwegian University of Science and Technology NTNU

Dr. Mjelle was awarded the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation/IASLC Fellowship Award for 2016-2018.  Dr. Mjelle’s main research interest is RNA biology and biomarkers.  In 2013, he started his collaboration with PhD/MD Oluf D. Roe and became interested in the use of neRNAs as biomarkers for cancer.  Today, Dr. Mjelle is involved in three different biomarker projects; lung cancer, hepatocellular carcinoma and colorectal cancer.  His long term research goal is to get a better understanding of neRNAs, and to be able to use these molecules to treat patients and predict disease.
