Thesis Title: Stem cells in the pituitary gland and candidate cancer stem cells in pituitary tumors. Promoter: Prof. Dr. Vankelecom Laboratory of Tissue Plasticity Faculty of Medicine, KU Leuven This thesis study essentially contributed to the final identification of stem/progenitor cells in the pituitary gland and strongly argues for the functional implication of these cells in plastic cell (re-)modeling of the gland. Moreover, we identified a SP as candidate CSC in pituitary adenomas. In particular, EMT - in connection with SP/CSC -, may play an important role in pituitary tumor pathogenesis and represent an interesting mechanistic and therapeutic concept to advance the field.
