In August 2018 I obtained my master’s degree in Life Science & Technology at Leiden University. For my first master internship I joined the group of Prof. Jacques Neefjes, where I investigated the involvement of the nuclear DNA sensor IFI16 in anthracycline toxicity. I continued working on the improvement of current cancer treatments during my second internship in the group of dr. Lotje Zuur at the NKI. Here, I focused on the identification of the molecular pathways that underlie the novel radiosensitizer GSK635416A. After finishing my master’s I returned to the LUMC to work as a PhD student in the group of dr. Baoxu Pang. During my PhD I will use unique screening systems to search for genomic elements that are essential for biological processes such as cell survival, development and drug response.
