MYCimmune is an international cancer research and innovation collaborative, which strives to advance clinically viable MYC oncogene-directed therapeutic concepts to early phase clinical testing. In essence, the concept of synthetic lethality follows the same principles as one of the most popular martial art Judo – instead of trying to subdue the force of your adversary with even mightier force, you just use the strength of your adversary as a weapon against itself.

"Real listening is a willingness to let the other person change you." -Communication training by Kimmo Kääriä.This year our scientific focus day included a workshop on team communication skills. These skills are especially important as we spend A LOT of time discussing ideas, results, techniques, etc.. After the workshop we got to finish the day with a lovely spin around the Haltia exhibit at Nuuksio. Great communication = great teamwork = great science 🥼🧪🔬#communication #teamwork #scicomm University of Helsinki #cancerresearch #listen #nuuksio ... See MoreSee Less
