Everything about cell division
Sander van den Heuvel
Sander van den Heuvel is Professor of Developmental Biology and leader of the research group. Van den Heuvel's research focuses on cell division and cell differentiation. When does a cell divide, and how?

In developing anti-cancer drugs, for example, it is of paramount importance to know how a cell divides. Biologist Sander van den Heuvel conducts research into important elements of the cell cycle, namely the moments at which a cell is signalled to divide or not.

Van den Heuvel: "We mainly conduct fundamental research here, but we are gradually unveiling cell mechanisms which form the basis for curing cancer or stem cell therapies."
