2018-11-30  -  Pieter Roelofs received a travel grant from the René Vogels Stichting


Pieter Roelofs, PhD candidate at the Radiotherapy & OncoImmunology laboratory, Dept. of Radiation Oncology, was awarded a 3500 EUR travel grant from the René Vogels Stichting. He received the award in order to perform a work visit to prof. Reuben Harris’ lab at theUniversity of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA. Pieter’s work is focused on the role of the DNA cytosine deaminase APOBEC3B in the development of therapy resistance in breast cancer. During his 14-months stay in Minneapolis as part of his KWF-funded project, he will investigate why this anti-viral enzyme is deregulated in a large proportion of breast tumors, leading to increased mutations and subsequent therapy resistance.
