Long non coding RNA lineage survival oncogene cancer biology
Project description

Several studies provided evidence that lncRNAs influence the cancer phenotype and are important in cancer cell survival. The purpose of my PhD is to identify novel lineage survival oncogenic lncRNAs that may serve as cancer specific therapeutic targets and to increase our knowledge on how these lncRNAs mechanistically affect cancer hallmarks.
