The Department of Molecular Genetics
has a long history and strong world-wide reputation in understanding the DNA damage responses at the molecular, cellular and physiological level. The department consists of a vibrant and international group of more than 80 researchers working on various aspects of DNA damage, DNA repair and other DNA damage related responses.
This project will be a joint project between the labs of Prof. J. Marteijn, Prof. J. Hoeijmakers
and Prof. W. Vermeulen
, in which we study the molecular mechanisms on how cells deal with DNA damage that interferes with transcription, using a multidisciplinary approach including molecular and cell biological and genomic and transcriptomic approaches. Our labs work in a highly collaborative manner with a strong focus on state-of-the-art live-cell imaging, genetic and proteomic tools. Our group acts internationally at the forefront of DNA damage and transcription stress and offers a dynamic, challenging, and cooperative research environment.
Erasmus MC stands for a healthy population and excellence in healthcare. By conducting groundbreaking work, we aim to push boundaries through leading the way in research, education and healthcare to improve and renew the healthcare of today and the public health of tomorrow. To stimulate research, the Erasmus MC provides access to the latest equipment and techniques in a state-of-the-art environment.
