After having worked in our laboratory as a MSc student in 2018, Antoine is back to the University of Montpellier, France, where he will work at his PhD project entitled "Role of the transcriptional factor RIP140 in the regulation of stemness and drug resistance of colon cancer cells" in Vincent Cavaillès’ laboratory.
Marti Borkent joined the lab in 2008 as a MSc student from the Molecular Medicine program. During her 6 months internship, she studied the role of b-catenin signaling in cancer stem cells.
After completing her MSc, Marti joined Konrad Hochedlinger’s lab in Boston, MA, to do her PhD research that she hopes to soon finalize.
Currently, she is completing her medical degree at the Erasmus MC.
Martin Watson was in Riccardo's lab from 2011 to 2012 where he worked at his MSc thesis on in vitro and in vivo tumorigenic potential of human CRC cell lines. He then carried on as a research technician, until 2013.
Martin is currently working at the Stavanger University Hospital (Norway), department of Research (Gastrointestinal Translational Research Unit).
Medine worked in Riccardo`s lab as MSc student from 2011 until 2012. Her work concerned on the relation between IL-6 on chemotherapy resistance of endometrial cancer stem cells.
Later on she continued as a PhD student until 2014.
Myrrhe van Spronsen
Myrrhe was in Riccardo’s laboratory from February 2005 to August 2005. She investigated the role of the APC gene in chromosomal instability, which was a project for her Molecular Medicine MSc thesis.
Thereafter, she completed a master in Neuroscience and did a PhD with Prof. Casper Hoogenraad in Neurobiology, followed by a post doc at Yale (US) and UCL (UK) with Prof. James Rothman (Nobelprize 2013) to study the mechanisms of neuropsychiatric diseases.
Myrrhe received several scientific awards among which the Dutch Neuroscience Thesis Award. Currently, she is combining a clinical and scientific career in Psychiatry at the UMC Utrecht.
