The Department of Molecular Genetics
has a long-standing world-wide established reputation in dissecting the DNA damage response 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 related pathways. This project will be carried out in the group of Dr. Hannes Lans
, which investigates molecular mechanisms of the DNA damage response in relation to DNA repair disease and cancer therapy. For this, we use molecular genetics and cell biological techniques in both mammalian cells and C. elegans and strongly focus on state-of-the-art live cell imaging. Our group collaborates intensively with the other groups within our department and together we act internationally at the forefront of the DNA repair field. We offer a dynamic, challenging, and cooperative research environment and an excellent training and supervision platform through a dedicated PhD teaching program of our Erasmus MC Graduate School.
The 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.
