About Gerben Borst


Slangen, Paul

Paul Slangen



In 2016 I started working as a technician in the lab of Gerben Borst, where I  investigate ways to radiosensitize glioma.
Before my career at the Netherlands Cancer Institute, I finished the Master's Program 'Biomolecular Sciences' at VU University in Amsterdam. For my Master's thesis, I studied the radiosensitization of glioma cell lines by inhibition of the MAPK-pathway. This internship was performed at the Neuro-Research group and Radiotherapy department of the VUMc Cancer Center Amsterdam.

In October 2016 I started as a Research technician in the group of Gerben Borst. On the project we aim to study the irradiation induced tumoral changes to understand how to design targeted strategies killing more radioresistant subpopulations to improve radiotherapy outcome. A better understanding of the dynamics of these irradiation induced changes during treatment is needed to identify when during radiotherapy which of these factor(s) (reoxygenation, repopulation, redistribution, repair) determine the treatment outcome. Subsequently, the therapeutic window can be increased by the use of agents targeting these factors determining the radiotherapy outcome.
