Opening Lecture by Hans Clevers

Hans Clevers - Utrecht

We feel very honoured to welcome Hans Clevers in Antwerp giving the Keynote Speech within the Opening Ceremony.

 

Hans Clevers is a professor in molecular genetics and director of the Hubrecht Institute in Utrecht.

 

Research Objectives of the Clevers Group

Lgr5 stem cells, Wnt signaling & cancer

"Originally focused on T lymphocyte transcription factors, we cloned Tcf1 in 1991. With the discovery that Tcf factors are the final effectors of Wnt signaling, we changed our interests to the biology of Wnt signaling in intestinal self-renewal and cancer.  We identified a series of adult tissue stem cells with the novel Lgr5 marker, currently our major focus of research."
