Josephine Kahn

PhD student


I studied Medicine at the VU University in Amsterdam and obtained a MSc. in Immunology from Oxford University. 

After my medical studies, I started my Ph.D. in collaboration with the Bernards lab at the NKI, and the Ebert lab at Harvard Medical School. My research is funded by the Diamond Program Fellowship from the Netherlands Scientific Organization (NWO).

My research focuses on myeloid malignancies, where I try to find genetic alterations that underlie chemotherapy resistance in cancer. In addition, I aim to discover novel targeted therapies to treat patients that do respond to conventional chemotherapy regimens.
