Hot science

Just before our seminar started, the organizers of ESHG told us that the air conditioning in the room was broken. This probably wouldn’t have been a problem had only a few people showed up. But the room quickly got full – and somehow we managed to fit more than 80 people into a room for 60, which resulted in a very warm atmosphere… Luckily people were positive about it, which we appreciate a lot!

To all of you who couldn’t get in because it was full, we are sorry for this. But we are hosting an online webinar, where we’ll go through some of the stuff we covered at the seminar. If you’re interested in this, please send a mail to and we’ll include you in the session we’re planning to host in week 28.

Website dedicated to cancer research

At the seminar, we also launched a new website completely dedicated to cancer research Here we’ll gather all our cancer related research, information, news, and updates.

Thanks to everyone who participated.
