KWF Grant for Breakthrough Adrenal Study

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Jelte van der Vaart, a postdoctoral researcher in the lab, has been honoured with the Unique High Risk Grant from KWF Kankerbestrijding for his project “Adrenal Cortical Organoids as Disease Models and Patient Avatars.” This grant facilitates his study into adrenocortical carcinoma organoids, with a particular focus on studying the Wnt signalling pathway’s dysregulation.

This project represents a collaborative effort as part of the Dutch Adrenal Network, with a shared goal of advancing our understanding of adrenal cancer and exploring new possibilities for treatment.

We proudly welcome this new line of research in our laboratory. The expertise within our team in the field of Wnt signalling and organoid culture has enabled us to secure this opportunity, marking a significant moment for both Jelte and the lab. Looking to the future, we are optimistic about the potential findings and contributions this research will bring to the scientific community.
