Oncode Quarterly Magazine - July
In the past quarter we said goodbye to one of the driving forces behind the idea of Oncode: Angus Livingstone. Upon his well-deserved retirement, his position as Valorization Director was taken over by Chris De Jonghe. In this magazine, Angus and Chris reflect on and look ahead to what Oncode has to offer.
In months where digital is the new standard, we took a deep-dive into one of our labs where the work on outsmarting cancer is mostly through digital research. How can computational biology further cancer research? Lodewyk Wessels and his team give you a sneak peek into building the ultimate computational model to understand drug responses in cancer treatment. In a more personal interview, we get to know Oncode Investigator Puck Knipscheer. With agricultural roots and a passion for biology, physics and chemistry, her academic career took her from Wageningen, to Boston and back to Utrecht.
