Dr Anne Rios

Junior Principal Investigator, Princess Máxima Center for Pediatric Oncology

Dr. Anne Rios received her PhD in 2011, during which she identified a novel developmental scenario for stem cell fate decisions. Her PhD started in her hometown in France at the Institute of Marseille Luminy in Marseille, but later continued at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute in Melbourne, Australia. She stayed in Melbourne for her postdoctoral fellowship at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research. Here, she developed a novel 3D imaging technology that enabled visualization of intact tissue at single-cell resolution, powerful for studying organ development and cancer. In 2017, she joined the Princess Máxima Center for Pediatric Oncology as principal investigator and established her ‘DreamTeam’. Together, they advance imaging methodologies and quantification pipelines to tackle major obstacles in cancer treatment. In addition, she heads the Princess Máxima Imaging Center to provide access to a wide range of imaging modalities and share the expertise from her team with the scientific community. Besides her research goals, she is highly passionate about artistic visualizations of microscopic images to engage the public and inspire the future generation of scientists.
