After having worked for more than 2 years as a postdoctoral fellow in our laboratory, and a very important to a paper on colon cancer metastasis (currently under revision), Fanny has decided to continue with a different type of career.
She is now looking around for novel challenges and opportunities. Good luck!
Hang Le worked in Riccardo’s laboratory as a post-doctoral fellow in the Erasmus MC from 2005 to 2010.
She is currently specializing as a clinical chemist in the Reinier de Graaf Hospital in Delft, The Netherlands.
Jos Veldscholte worked in the laboratory as a post-doctoral fellow from January 2003 to October 2008 in the framework of Riccardo's Vici project on dose-dependent roles of canonical Wnt signaling in the regulation of self renewal and differentiation in stem cells, by using RNAi technology.
Currently, he is lecturer at the Rotterdam University of Applied Science, Institute for Engineering and Applied Science (EAS), Academy of Biology and Medical Laboratory Research (BML) in Rotterdam.
Matthias has worked at his PhD in Riccardo’s laboratory from 2012 to 2017.
He successfully defended his thesis entitled “Paneth Cells: Tales of a Gutsy Cell” (video) and encompassing many high-IF publications (Nature, Cell Stem Cell, Cell Reports) on September 19, 2018.
After his PhD, Matthias has been working as a post-doctoral fellow in the laboratory led by Pekka Katajisto in Helsinki, Finland first, and then at the Georg Speyer Haus in Frankfurt, he is now junior PI at the University of Heidelberg, Mannheim, Baden-Württemberg, Germany.
Mehrnaz Ghazvini worked in Riccardo’s laboratory from October 2004 till November 2009 as a post-doctoral fellow on the isolation and characterization of colon cancer stem cells.
She is currently head of Erasmus MC iPS core facility of Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
Yaser Atlasi, is a former PhD student in Riccardos laboratory (from 2008 to 2013).
His PhD thesis is entitled "Wnt signaling in stem cells and cancer".
After a postdoctoral fellow in Prof. H. Stunnenberg's laboratory, at the Department of Molecular Biology of the Radboud University, in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, Yaser is continuing his research on the role of Wnt signaling in embryonic stem cells as a principal investigator and Vice-Chancellor University Fellow at Queen's University Belfast, Northern Ireland.
