Financial resources for research

Dr. Sjoerd van Wijk, group leader at the Institute of Experimental Cancer Research in Pediatrics, received a research grant from the German Research Foundation (DFG) to further expand his own research group working on the regulation of ubiquitination in cell fate control. Previous work of van Wijk focused on cellular aspects of ubiquitin conjugation and its relevance for cell survival, cancer progression and immunity against intracellular bacteria. In the upcoming three years, van Wijk aims to further understand of ubiquitination in cell death and survival in healthy and cancer cells using highly multi-disciplinary, state-of-the-art approaches. The Institute of Experimental Cancer Research in Pediatrics is partially funded by the Frankfurter Stiftung für krebskranke Kinder.
