Louise Janssen

Ph.D. student


In 2016 I started my PhD in the lab of René Medema, where I investigate the vulnerabilities of chromosomal instable cells. Normally, cells are not able to cope with chromosomal instability (CIN). However, cancer cells can tolerate CIN and many cancers display chromosome missegregations. During my PhD, I will characterize and exploit pathways needed for the survival of CIN cells.

Before starting my PhD I completed the Master Biomedical Sciences at the University of Leiden, during which I performed an internship at the lab of René Medema regarding defects in the Spindle Assembly Checkpoint.
