Postdoctoral fellow+31 20 512 1471 email@example.com Karin de Visser
I obtained my PhD degree in the laboratory of Prof. Jukka Westermarck at Turku Centre for Biotechnology at University of Turku, Finland. During my PhD training I investigated the in vivo role of the recently identified oncoprotein CIP2A in breast cancer. After finishing my PhD I focused on studying cellular mechanisms promoting formation of the aggressive breast cancer subtype, basal-like breast cancer.
In April 2016 I joined Dr. Karin de Visser's laboratory to investigate novel approaches to target basal-like breast cancer. My research focus is on understanding the crosstalk between senescent tumor cells and tumor infiltrating immune cells.
