On a regularly basis the CMMC welcomes students from different Master and PhD Programs to learn more about the ongoing research activities of the research groups and to meet the principal investigators with her/his research team.
On June 07, 2017 the students of theMaster Program Cancer Stem Cells and Developmental Biology of the Utrecht Universityhttps://www.uu.nl/masters/en/cancer-stem-cells-and-developmental-biology visited the CMMC.
Following CMMC principal investigators gave a short presentation of their research activities followed by lab visits:
Paul T Brinkkötter
Metabolic signaling at the kidney filtration barrier
Mechanisms of tumor development
Personalized treatment for muscular dystrophies
Brains in dish; brain organoids for human brain research
Molecular basis of vertebrate cardiac development, aging, and regeneration
Stem cell mechanisms in tumor initiation
Transcriptional enhancers in development and congenital disease
Towards a structure-to-function code for mammalian genomes
Systematic identification of significantly mutated gene groups in cancer genomes
Femke Groenveld, member of the student committee of the Master Program "Cancer, Stem Cells and Developmental Biology" of the University of Utrecht, commented that the students enjoyed the visit very much, and especially appreciated the combination of the short talks together with personal lab tours, giving the possibility to discuss the research in more detail.
