Eva-Leonne Göttgens, PhD candidate at the Radiotherapy & OncoImmunology laboratory, Dept. of Radiation Oncology, was awarded a 3650 EUR travel grant from the René Vogels Stichting.
She received the award in order to perform a work visit to Dr Ester Hammond’s lab at the CRUK-MRC Oxford Insitute for Radiation Oncology in the UK. Her research is focused on unravelling mechanisms of radioresistance in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas. During her time in Oxford, she will investigate the effect of human papillomavirus infections on radioresistance, as well as the involvement of specific DNA damage repair pathways.
