Antoinette van Weverwijk

Postdoctoral Fellow


I did my PhD in the lab of Prof. Clare Isacke at the Institute of Cancer Research in London, where I performed an in vivo shRNA screen and identified AKR1B10 as a novel driver of breast cancer metastasis.

I joined Karin de Visser's lab in March 2018 as a postdoctoral researcher. I'm currently working on two research projects. In the first project I'm trying to understand how tumour-associated myeloid cells counteract chemotherapy response. The second project is focused on identifying tumour-genotype/immune-phenotype relationships in breast cancer, with a particular interest in PI3K alterations.
