I come from the Netherlands where I obtained my bachelor’s degree in molecular life sciences at Radboud University Nijmegen. Currently, I am in the second year of a master’s program in pharmaceutical sciences at Utrecht University. As part of this master’s program I joined Magda Bienko’s lab for an internship with the purpose to characterize chromosomes using FISH.
I come from Poland where on October 2016 I obtained my PhD degree at Medical University of Lublin. I am working on Research Fellow (post doc) position at the Department of Pneumonology, Oncology and Allergology (Medical University of Lublin) and where I am the Principal Investigator of SONATA grant funded by Polish National Science Center.
On October 2017 I was awarded in the Mobilnosc Plus grant funded by Polish Ministry of Science and High Education that allowed me to join Nicola Crosetto group as a visiting researcher. During my internship I realize project entitled: “Molecular background of brain metastases and primary tumors of lung cancer”. The project aspects focus on the study of tumor heterogeneity between primary and corresponding metastatic lesions, which were acquired during the disease.
It is worth to mention that this is my second visit in BiCroLab. Previously, I visited the Lab during my PhD studies in Erasmus Plus programme in January 2016.
I’m originally from Marche, a small region from center of Italy. But I’ve spent the last ten years in Milan, both for my university education and my PhD. This period was interspaced by some short research experiences in Germany and Japan. I’m a last year PhD student in the DNA Repair laboratory headed by Dr. Dana Branzei, in IFOM, and I’m studying the role of a cohesion related protein in DNA damage response. I visited Dr. Crosetto’s laboratory to learn BLISS (Breaks labeling in situ and sequencing) technology, in order to apply it to my research project.
I come from Poland where I study Biotechnology at the Department of Biophysics, Biochemistry and Biotechnology at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow. I’m going to obtain my bachelor’s degree in 2019. I came to Stockholm to join the Bienko lab at the Karolinska Institute/SciLifeLab to learn basics of the FISH technique. I had an amazing opportunity to gain my first experience in laboratory practice and to see how working in a lab abroad looks like.
I come from Grenoble in France but currently I study in Lyon. I’m a 2nd year undergraduate student at the school of Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnologies (ESTBB) at the Catholic University of Lyon. As part of my program I have to do a 4 months internship in a laboratory to put into practice the different technical skills that I learn for a real laboratory project. In my opinion, it was the perfect opportunity to travel in a foreign country so that’s why I decided to go in Stockholm. I joined Nicola Crosetto’s lab to work on DNA and RNA FISH. It fits perfectly with what I wanted to work on, furthermore cancer research is a topic of great interest to me. So now I look forward develop my knowledge on this subject and I’m glad to be part of this team for few months.
I come from Italy where I obtained my B.Sc degree in Biology at the Department of Chemistry, Biology and Biotechnology at the University of Perugia. I come to Stockholm for an internship in the Crosetto Lab at SciLifeLab within the Erasmus plus traineeship programme. The biomedical area has always been my passion. Indeed, the core of my studies is focused on the cellular-molecular subjects. In the Crosetto Lab I am learning how to put knowledge into practice. I have the opportunity to learn the concept of tumor heterogeneity and FISH techniques.
I am a first year Biomedical Master student at Karolinska Institutet. I am from Hungary, I obtained my B.Sc degree in Biology at Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest. In the first two years I was a student researcher at a neural cell biology laboratory. In 2014 I participated in Amgen Scholars Program at Karolinska Institutet. These two months had great impact on my life and I decided to come back. So now I am here and I would like to get involved in medical research, preferably cancer research. I find the concept of tumor heterogeneity quite interesting, so I joined to Nicola’s lab and at first I am getting familiar with FISH techniques.
I was born in Mainz, which is located in the south of Germany and grew up in a village near the city. In 2014 I started to study the International Degree Programme Industrial and Environmental Biology at the City University of Applied Sciences in Bremen. During the fifth and sixth semester the students from these program are supposed to spend a semester as well as a practical training abroad. Within my internship at the IMB in Mainz in spring 2016, I listened to a lecture of Nicola. I found his research really interesting and decided therefore to apply for an internship in his lab team. I already came to Sweden in August 2016 to study for one semester at the University of Gothenburg within the ERASMUS programme. Afterwards I moved to Stockholm to join the Crosetto group at the Karolinska Institutet and SciLifeLab for a traineeship within the ERASMUS plus programme. Primarily I will learn to conduct the method BLISS, which is used to detect DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) in cancer cells.
I come from Madrid, Spain and currently I am doing my master studies at Karolinska Institutet. Previously I studied a bachelor degree in Biochemistry in the University of Granada, where I specialized in Biomedicine. Nevertheless, I did my bachelor thesis during my Erasmus Exchange in Vienna, in the Universität für Bodenkultur Wien (BOKU), and it was focused on the 3D culture of stem cells for microfluidic devices. Now I am on the second year of the Biomedicine master program, which covers different internships along the whole program, inlcuding the master thesis. I joined Magda Bienko’s lab for my master thesis with the purpose of unraveling genome structure properties and how it can affect gene expression using FISH techniques.
I come from Japan where I obtained my M.Sc degree in Biomedical Engineering at Tohoku University. After that, I joined Sony Corporation in 2007 where I am par of the Life Science Department, Biomedical R&D Division. I have been engaged in R&D of biomolecular sensing (protein, DNA, RNA), cell manipulation and analysis using microfluidics and surface chemistry. In October 2016 I joined the BiCroLab at Karolinska Institutet and Science for Life Laboratory as a visiting researcher. I strongly believe that new technology can change the world.
I come from Nowy Targ, a small city located in the south of Poland. I study biochemistry at Jagiellonian University in Cracow, where I am going to obtain Bachelor’s degree in 2017 at Microbiology Department. In the summer of 2016 I joined the group of Nicola Crosetto for two months to broaden my horizons and gain first experience in an abroad laboratory.
I was born in Marseille, France in 1994. I studied in Grenoble’s University of Sciences and Technologies, and I passed my Bachelor Degree in Biology in 2015. During this period, in summer 2014, I did a two months internship related to diabetes in the laboratory of Fundamental and Applied Bioenergetics (LBFA). Then, I moved to Lille to study in their Master of Biotechnologies, which offered a genetics specialization I was particularly interested in. To specialize more in this field, I joined Magda Bienko’s team in SciLifeLab in April 2016 for a four month internship included in my first year of Master, with the aim of understanding better the genome architecture in the nucleus.
I am from Stockholm and received my B.Sc. in biotechnology in 2015 at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). Currently I am studying towards a M.Sc. in medical biotechnology at the same university. I was a member of the 2015 Stockholm IGEM team who received a nomination for Best Health and Medicine Project in the overgrad category. In summer 2016 I joined Magda’s lab to uncover the secrets of the genome.
