Job description

Approximately 70% of all human tumors are aneuploid, which strongly correlates with tumor grade, metastasis and poor patient prognosis. One of the possible causes for aneuploidy is chromosomal instability (CIN): frequent gains and losses of whole chromosomes during cell division. We have recently shown that CIN can be highly oncogenic, depending on the severity of CIN and on the affected tissue. The underlying mechanisms are however still unknown. The candidate will work on a KWF-funded project (granted to and supervised by Dr. Nannette Jelluma) in which a mouse model of CIN is used to investigate the mechanisms underlying the oncogenic properties of CIN in intestinal cancer.
