Cell biologist by training, Maria recently completed PhD at BRIC, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Her work was centered around applications of the extracellular matrix, derived from decellularized tissues, in studying breast and pancreatic cancers progression. Advancing as a cancer researcher, she sets for the next challenge in tackling clinically relevant questions in Momo’s lab, where she will focus her efforts on uncovering mechanisms of therapy resistance in the metastatic breast cancer niches.
At the occasion of the 4th Multidisciplinary international FEBS/Institut Curie Lecture course on Computational Systems Biology of Cancer Multiomics and Machine learning Approches, Michal has been awarded for the best oral presentation.
Once again congratulations to Ana Correia (former post-doctoral fellow of our lab) for winning the Department of Medicine Research Prize 2020/2021 for her research on the role of hepatic stellate cells and NK cells in breast cancer dormancy.
