Title: In this project we aim to address some of these issues by identifying the molecular mechanisms that underlie radiation-induced PMT. Next, we will investigate whether we can block these to prevent the occurrence of mesenchymal differentiation both in vitro and in vivo with the ultimate aim to enhance the tumor’s sensitivity to radiation and to provide possible new avenues for better treatment strategies.

(13) PhD Position:

Title: Recycling americium from spent nuclear fuels is considered as an important option for a future sustainable nuclear fuel cycle. Indeed, americium is the main contributor to the long-term radiotoxicity and heat-load of the remaining waste. To reduce the footprint and lifetime of a final disposal facility it is possible to separate americium and then transmute it into shorter lived radionuclides (which requires high flux neutron irradiation).
