Madelon Maurice is a professor of Molecular Cell Biology at the University Medical Center in Utrecht, The Netherlands, and a member of the national Oncode institute for cancer research. Her primary research interests are to uncover the mechanisms by which cells communicate during tissue renewal and how these processes are subjected to faulty regulation during cancer development. Her multidisciplinary research team is amongst the leading laboratories internationally in the field of Wnt signalling, a major signalling pathway that controls the maintenance and activity of stem cell reservoirs and is frequently misused by cancer cells.
