PhD student Bilal Unal successfully defends his thesis


Yesterday was a big day for Bilal and our lab: Bilal had his PhD thesis defense with opponents Prof. Eric Chevet from INSERM, France, and Prof. Peter Nelson from Fred Hutch Cancer Center, University of Washington, USA, examining him. First, Bilal successfully gave the trial lecture on the topic "The role of DNA repair processes in cancer and implications for treatment" with animated discussions on the topic afterwards. It was then the thesis defense with the title "Molecular characterization of the unfolded protein response and implications for prostate cancer". There were very stimulating discussions during the defense with new research ideas emerging where Bilal stood his ground very well and successfully finished his PhD.

Congratulations Dr. Bilal Unal!
