Sander Steenbeek

Ph.D. Student


I started my position as a PhD student with Jacco van Rheenen at the Hubrecht Institute (Utrecht, The Netherlands). In 2017, I started working at the Netherlands Cancer Institute when our research group moved host institutes.

My research interests include extracellular vesicles (EVs), which are small membrane enclosed vesicles released by both healthy and diseased cells. EVs have been shown to functionally transfer proteins, lipids and a variety of RNA molecules between cells, influencing the behavior of the recipient cell. I study how tumor cells communicate with each other through EVs and how this influences tumor progression and metastasis.
