Julia Houthuijzen, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral fellow


In 2010 I obtained my Master's degree in Biomedical Science at the University of Utrecht. A few months later I started my PhD training in the group of Prof. Emile Voest at the University Medical Center in Utrecht. During my PhD I discovered a lipid signaling cascade involving splenic macrophages that induces resistance against DNA-damaging chemotherapeutics. In 2016 I started my post doc in the lab of Prof. Jos Jonkers where I am working on the identification and validation of molecular drivers of invasive lobular breast cancer and triple-negative breast cancer using various genetic mouse models.
