Holland : 3 PhD Students (multi-topic)

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font


The Departments of Nuclear Medicine, Radiology
and Medical Informatics collaborate in a translational research project
aimed at (further) improvement of a novel anti-tumor therapy.

This therapy is based on the use of small radioactive proteins (peptides), which bind specifically to receptors

on the tumor cells. These radioactive peptides locally irradiate and kill the tumor cells. The project has a strong

multidisciplinary character with involvement of biologists, physicians and engineers.

Job description

Within this project, non-invasive imaging techniques (MRI and
SPECT) will be used to study peptide binding to tumor tissue, local
tumor characteristics, and tumor response to therapy in a pre-clinical
model. The acquired

information will be used to identify characteristics that may influence distribution of the peptide and response to

therapy; these results will be verified clinically. This knowledge can then be used to personalize the individual

patient treatment. For this project 3 PhD students will address individual issues relevant to the project but will

also function as a team. Each student will be responsible for performing research, analyzing results, and writing

scientific manuscripts, leading to a PhD dissertation.
