KWF grant for investigation of LKB1 mutations

In september 2020, the KWF (Royal Dutch Cancer Foundation) allocated 660.000 euros in funding for our lab to investigate how hereditary mutations in the LKB1 gene promote alterations in epithelial organization to generate a state of cancer predisposition in patients suffering from Peutz-Jeghers syndrome. We will perform this research in collaboration with our neighbors of the group of professor Edwin Cuppen.
