The “Molecular Mechanisms in Cancer – Translating Discoveries into Personalised Therapies” Eurolife Summer School lasts one week and will be held in Leiden (The Netherlands) from 9th to 13th July 2018. Cancer is one of the most common causes of death around the world; one out of every eight of all deaths is due to cancer. Cancer arises when cells acquire gene mutations that induce uncontrolled cell growth often resulting in invasion into other tissues. Standard chemo- and radio therapy are aimed at killing the rapidly proliferating cancer cells. However, these therapies can be ineffective and have effects on normal cells that cause serious side effects […]
Eurolife Summer School
The Summer School proposal by Prof. Peter ten Dijke (Dept. of Molecular Cell Biology, Leiden University Medical Center, The Netherlands), entitled “Molecular Mechanisms in Cancer – Translating Discoveries into Personlised Therapies“, has been selected for funding by the Eurolife network.
Ilse Boekhoud – PhD student at LUMC- shares her experience of attending the Eurolife Summer School 2017: From the 10th to the 14th of July, master- and PhD students had the opportunity to attend the first Eurolife summer school ìn 2017 entitled ‘Antimicrobial drug resistance – Research and Innovation’ at the University of Barcelona. The LUMC is participating in Eurolife and was represented in Barcelona by two teachers (dr. Peter Nibbering and prof. Ed Kuijper) and one PhD student (Ilse Boekhoud).
The Eurolife Summer School 2017 started on July 10 and continued until July 14. This first edition has been devoted to the Antimicrobial drug resistance field. All courses of the Summer School were taught in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences of the University of Barcelona. The Eurolife Summer School provided doctoral and MSc […]
Antimicrobial resistance in pathogens is one of the biggest threats in the world. The amount of isolated bacteria that present resistance to drugs used to fight them has increased over the last decades. As a result, the number of active antimicrobial agents has reduced and the search for new approaches in this field has become […]
