Take a look at the three themes!

We offer 3 individual artist-in-residence spots to connect with the research in the RepliFate network

In the RepliFate doctoral network, 12 fellows (PhD students) work in 12 laboratories throughout Europe researching DNA replication as a target for cancer treatment and stem cell identity. Each fellow works on a well-defined project within one of the four workpackages of the RepliFate research project – addressing questions ranging from fundamental research in genetics to exploration in drug development. For the artist-in-residence programme, the fellows are grouped in three themes. These themes give artists the opportunity to propose artistic projects and artistic research approaches that they aim to realize in the course of a residency with one selected theme, but with the opportunity to interact with the other themes across the network.
