Soulafa Mamlouk received her PhD in cancer immunology at the Technical University of Dresden in 2012. She then moved to Berlin and joined the group of Prof. Sers for her Post-Doctoral research as part of the DKTK (German Cancer Consortium). Her work has focused on the genetic heterogeneity of colorectal cancer (CRC), where she investigated several levels of heterogeneity with regards to DNA alterations, both SNVs (single nucleotide variant) and CNVs (copy number variant). Currently, she works on the evolution of CRC from an adenomatous growth to a carcinoma using patient samples. Soulafa will expand this investigation to encompass evolutionary mechanisms of resistance in CRC therapy.
