Thankful for our great and long-lasting collaboration with the Van Rheenen laboratory! New work, spearheaded by the Van Rheenen lab, in Cell Stem Cell about the origin of liver metastases from colorectal cancers. Using genetic mouse models and intravital imaging, it turns out that the major suspects, i.e. so-called cancer stem cells, are not the predominant seeders of metastases.
Much delayed by COVID, but Lotte was finally allowed to defend her thesis. Opponents and guests were virtually present, while Lotte filled the empty room with great display of her expertise and knowledge!
