New colleagues at Oncode Institute

Elize Brolsma

We are pleased to welcome Saharla Ahmed and Colette ten Hove to Oncode Institute. Saharla started as a Business Developer in the Valorization Team and Colette joined as a new Programme Manager in the General Support Team. We asked them to describe their role within Oncode briefly.

“My name is Colette ten Hove and I am happy to join the Oncode team as a Programme Manager. My initial focus will be the Patient Engagement programme. Oncode researchers benefit from this program by gaining a better understanding of the world of patients and can use this perspective within their fundamental research. I will also coordinate the Training & Mentoring programmes that enable Oncode researchers to connect, share and collaborate and provide support to the the next generation of scientific leaders.”

I am looking forward to supporting Oncode investigators and researchers with their valorization strategies, and working with them in any way that I can to translate their scientific findings to truly benefit society."

First patient-derived organoid model for cervical cancer
Researchers from the group of Oncode Investigator Hans Clevers (Hubrecht Institute) developed the first patient-derived organoid model for cervical cancer. They also modelled the healthy human cervix using organoids. In close collaboration with the UMC Utrecht, Princess Máxima Center for pediatric oncology and the Netherlands Cancer Institute, the researchers used the organoid-based platform to study sexually transmitted infections for a herpes virus. The model can potentially also be used to study the human papillomavirus (HPV), which is one of the main causes of cervical cancer.
