Johanna Pruller, PhD

Johanna Pruller is a research associate at King’s College London where she previously obtained a PhD in molecular medicine and focused on the development of a gene therapy for alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma. She has since then studied cancer heterogeneity and its consequence on why therapies fail and how tumor cells acquire resistance mechanisms.
