The TGAC is proud to announce the acquirement of a unique high risk grant by the Dutch Cancer Society KWF. This project will use various molecular techniques, including NGS, to resolve structure and clinical relevance of distinct genomic rearrangements in solid tumors.
On January 31st 2017 Daoud Sie will publicly defend his thesis: “Breaking the cancer code for patient care”, to acquire the title of Doctor.
Jamie Beagan, Daoud Sie and Erik van Dijk of the TGAC take part in the Amsterdam Marathon to raise funds for CCA cancer research. Hedde Biesma makes his contribution to fundraising for cancer research by biking the Zuiderzeeklassieker, a century ride… Read more >
In summer 2016 Paul Eijk and Dirk van Essen ran the last DNA arrays at VUmc Cancer Center Amsterdam. The last arrays were copy number (CGH) arrays, performed for diagnostic purposes to evaluate clonality of secondary tumors. Our shallow copy number… Read more >
On March 24th Dr. Hinke F. van Thuijl succesffully defended her thesis titled: “Molecular characterization of low-grade glial neoplasms“. Her (co-) promotors, Ylstra, Heimans, Wesseling and Reijneveld witnessed a splendid defence in the universities auditorium, accompanied by her colleagues, friends and family.
We are looking for an ambitious and independent post-doc. The primary task is to provide compelling molecular evidence to stratify colorectal cancer patients for the administration of different treatment modalities, like irinotecan or Bevacizumab. To achieve this, the candidate will assemble… Read more >
If you are an enthusiastic, communicative and pro-active Bioinformatician or Genome Biologist come join our team at the Cancer Center Amsterdam (CCA) of the VU University Medical Center (VUmc). We offer state of the art genome and proteome technologies, IT-facilities for medical research,… Read more >
The TGAC is proud to announce the acquirement of 2 grants by the Dutch Cancer Society KWF. Both projects will use NGS technologies to identify and validate clinically relevant predictive and prognostic mutation and copy number aberrations in large series… Read more >
We are looking for PhD student applications to develop blood based cancer diagnostics procedures on circulating free DNA for personalized patient care. You will use state-of-the-art techniques including Next generation sequencing (NGS) and droplet digital PCR (ddPCR) and learn the… Read more >
