Cell biologist passionate about stemness and plasticity
I obtained my BSc and MSc in Gene Technology at the University of Tartu, focusing on the biology of pluripotent stem cells. Fascinated by the clear similarities between pluripotent and cancer stem cells, I joined the research group of Dr Pauklin studying TGF-beta signalling in pancreatic cancer cells.
My research focuses on deciphering molecular mechanisms essential for establishment and maintenance of stemness state in pancreatic cancer.
