Dr Peter Hohenstein

Peter Hohenstein did his PhD in the laboratory of Riccardo Fodde in the Leiden University Medical Center in Leiden in the Netherlands, where he worked on the development and analysis of mouse models for hereditary breast (Brca1) and intestinal (Smad4) cancer. From there he went to the lab of Nick Hastie at the MRC Human Genetics Unit in Edinburgh to work on the role of Wt1 and β-catenin in normal kidney development, Wilms’ tumours and other cancer types. There he stayed for 11 years, first as post-doc, later as Senior Investigative Scientist with responsibility of the kidney and cancer projects in the lab. In 2012 he moved with his projects and part of the lab to an independent group leader position in The Roslin Institute.
