Diede Brunen

Ph.D. student


I studied Biomedical Sciences at Utrecht University and obtained a Master's degree in Infection and Immunology. During my Master, I performed internships at the department of Molecular Immunology at the Wilhelmina Kinderziekenhuis (Utrecht) and in the Cell Biology Department of the Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto, Canada.

I joined the lab of Prof. Dr. Rene Bernards at the end of 2012 as a PhD student. Here, I study the role of epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in cancer. Furthermore, using RNA interference genetic screens, I aim to identify genes that modulate the response to cancer drugs.
