Personal details


I am interested in a process called cell competition and in particular how tumors use this mechanism. This interest was developed in the lab of Euginia Piddini (Gurdon Institute, Cambridge, UK), where I moved after I finished my PhD in the lab of Geert Kops (UMC Utrecht). My current focus is involvement of cell competition in colorectal cancer, both at the primary site and during metastasis. With a combination of organoid and mouse models I investigate how cell competition affects tumor growth and how we could target cell competition for treatment colorectal cancer.
