Lab Technician - Lab for paediatric oncogenomics, Center for Medical Genetics  (UGent)
Principal investigator: prof. Panos Ntziachristos (PhD)


Research focus

The Ntziachristos lab studies the mechanistic aspects of oncogenesis with an emphasis on transcriptional and epigenetic regulation of acute leukemia. Important questions are related to how oncogenes interact with each other and with epigenetic modulators to influence gene expression programs as well as how their function is related to three-dimensional (3D) structure of the nucleus, how oncogenes are control at the post-translational level via (de)ubiquitination and other biological aspects of cancer cells, such as splicing. 


Ever since high school, I have had a strong interest in science. After getting my bachelor's degree in Biotechnology, I wanted to work in research and joined the Ntziachristos’ laboratory. Here, I hope to contribute to leukemia research and help my colleagues as a lab technician.
