AIAS Fellows' Seminar: Martin Thomsen

Cancer models: In vivo cancer models based on CRISPR/ Cas9

Info about event


Monday 9 September 2019,  at 14:15 - 16:00


The AIAS Auditorium, Building 1632, Room 201


The focus of my research is cancer biology and the molecular mechanism in tumor progression. We have established in vivo cancer models in mice and mini pigs, with the use of CRIPRS technology. Hereby, disease models can be generated with genetic alterations of multiple genes simultaneously. My talk will focus on disease progression in lung, glioblastoma and prostate cancer and how these models can be used for pre-clinical studies of, for example, immune therapy.    


Short bio

Martin K. Thomsen obtained his PhD at The Institute of Cancer Research in London and hereafter he trained at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre in Madrid. In 2016 Martin K. Thomsen started his research group at the Institute for Clinical Medicine at Aarhus University. The aim of the group is to study cancer in advanced animal models by use of CRISPR technology.

What is a Fellows' Seminar?

The AIAS Fellows' Seminar is a session of seminars held by the AIAS fellow or by other speakers proposed by the fellows. In each seminar, one fellow will present and discuss his/her current research and research project, closing off with a question and discussion session.

All seminars are held in English and open to the public. Registration to the seminar is not necessary.
