EWSR1-WT1 function in Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumors (DSRCT)

Phone +31623715399

Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor (DSRCT) is a rare and aggressive cancer type that mainly appears in the abdominal area of adolescents and young adults. The disease is characterized by the presence of a EWSR1-WT1 fusion gene. During my internship, I will study the molecular mechanism by which the EWSR1-WT1 fusion protein transforms cells. Using a novel DSRCT organoid model, I aim to tag the fusion protein with tags that shall allow me to purify the transforming complex.
