Ina A. Eilertsen and Christian Holst Bergsland defended their respective work in transcriptomics and molecular pathology of colorectal cancer, Maren Høland recently defended her work on genomics of Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors, and Jonas Meier Strømme defended his computational analyses in solid tumors last week, 9th Dec. Their PhD theses comprise a total of thirteen papers from our groups, including eleven first-authorships among the PhD candidates.
