Uncovering the origin of paediatric cancers using advanced imaging approaches

At the Princess Máxima Center for Paediatric oncology, we strive to cure every child with cancer, while providing an optimal quality of life. Our research department is directly connected to care units, which enables close collaboration with clinicians and surgeons.
The Rios group has developed novel imaging technologies to uncover the cellular dynamics underlying of paediatric cancers. We combine Large-scale, Single-cell Resolution 3D (LSR-3D) imaging with single-cell RNA sequencing to uncover the origin of developing organs with their associated paediatric cancer. Here, we will highlight the power of developmental biology tools and novel imaging approaches to study all paediatric cancers.
