    Marco Bechtel

  • Marco Bechtel has obtained his Master degree in Technical Biology from the TU Darmstadt. He performed his Master Project in the lab of Prof. Dr. Jindrich Cinatl (Department of Pediatric Oncology and Virology, Goethe Universität Frankfurt) where he addressed in vitro drug resistance mechanisms. Now, his PhD project involves the genetic dissection of resistance phenotypes in colon cancer organoids using CRISPR/Cas9 methods, a project funded by the German Cancer Aid.

    Moyo Grebbin

  • Moyo Grebbin studied biology at the Goethe University Frankfurt and Queen Mary University, London and graduated in 2010 under supervision of Dr. Momma (Edinger Institute, Frankfurt). She absolved her PhD in 2015 on the role of Pbx transcriptions factors in mouse adult neurogenesis in the group of Prof. Schulte (Edinger Institute; Frankfurt). Currently, she develops new organoid-based models to address tumor progression in human colon cancer. Her work has been supported by LOEWE/CGT and DKTK.

    Benardina Ndreshkjana

  • Benardina Ndreshkjana has a Master degree in Pharmacy from the University of Milan. She absolved her PhD at the University Clinic Erlangen under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Regine Schneider-Stock (Department of experimental tumor pathology) on the study of mechanisms to overcome chemoresistance. Her current project is funded by the Frankfurt Cancer Institute and aims to understand drug-resistance mechanisms in patient-derived tumor organoids.
