Welcome to Leire Bejarano, who received an EMBO fellowship to fund her postdoc research on brain metastasis. Leire did her PhD in Maria Blasco’s lab at the CNIO, Madrid, where she focused on telomere targeting in glioblastoma.
The lab returns to Au Chat Noir for our Christmas dinner- happy holidays to all!
Welcome to new Ph.D. student Roeltje Maas who recently received her M.D. from the Radbaud University, Netherlands, and new postdoc Spencer Watson who just received his PhD from Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, USA
Congratulations to Daniela, Oakley and all authors for our paper in Nature Cell Biology elucidating how obesity promotes breast metastasis
Well done to Dongyao and all authors for our study in Oncogene showing how tumor-associated macrophages interfere with the efficacy of tyrosine kinase inhibitors in gliomas
Welcome to new graduate student Vladimir Wichnewski who joins us from the University of Freiburg, Germany where he did his MSc in Molecular Medicine, and new postdoc Klara Soukup who recently received her PhD from the University of Vienna, Austria.
Congratulations and farewell to Leila who is starting her own lab at the Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI), Amsterdam. We wish you all the very best!
Welcome to Anoek Zomer, who joins our lab as a postdoc after her PhD on stem cell biology, extracellular vesicles, and intravital imaging of tumours in the van Rheenen lab, Hubrecht Institute, Utrecht.
