Carla Rios Arceo
Hi! I’m Carla and I am a PhD student in the Drost lab since January 2023. My projects focus on the study of epigenetically driven pediatric brain tumors, mainly high-grade gliomas. Our aim is to study the role of epigenetic remodeling in tumorigenesis using patient-derived tumor organoid models in combination with gene-editing techniques. By investigating the epigenetic mechanisms that underpin cancer development, we hope to identify potential new therapeutic avenues.
I’m from the Canary Islands, so I am still getting used to the Dutch weather. Still, I make it up by going for a beer with friends in my spare time, travelling around or doing sports, such as bouldering and basketball.
