Marie Skłodowska Curie PhD Fellowship in Biotechnology and Bioengineering/Synthetic Biology at the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich (ETH-Zürich), Switzerland, in the group of Prof. Martin Fussenegger, at the department of Biosystems Science and Engineering
Project: “Development of inducible epigenetic interference tools”
PI Prof. Martin Fussenegger (ETH), EpiPredict co-PI Dr Mats Jirstrand (FCC)
ETH Dept. of Biosystems Science and Engineering (http://www.bsse.ethz.ch/doctorate.html
Key Objectives & Expected Results
Brief overview of this project’s objectives and expected results:
- To build (light/chemical) inducible gene-specific epigenetic interference tools
- To characterize time-induced epigenetic interference in resistance-induced clones on pathway activation
- Insight in the interplay of regulatory feedback loops in epigenetic regulation of resistance induction
- Insight how resistance-induced ERa related pathways are affected in time through epigenetic interference
Host training: Clone generation, gene circuit behaviour, synthetic devices and modelling
Planned secondment(s): UMCG: Epigenetic editing, UvA: Bioinformatics/modelling, FCC: Data integration/modelling
