New IBL Professor in “Cellular Tumor Biology”: Ewa Snaar-Jagalska

From the 1st of April Ewa Snaar-Jagalska has been appointed Professor in the field of cellular tumor biology within the Faculty of Science at the Institute of Biology Leiden. Snaar’s research focuses on the cellular tumor biology and human cancer modeling in zebrafish with the ultimate aim of establishing zebrafish as a key model for rapid discovery and assessment of genetic cancer targets and drugs to develop strategies for cancer therapies. Many molecular and cellular components involved in tumorigenicity are highly conserved between zebrafish and human making this platform clinically relevant.
