Sandra van den Broek, MSc

Postdoctoral fellow


From 2009-2014 I worked as a PhD student at the divisions of Psychosocial Research and Epidemiology, and Molecular Pathology, studying genetic determinants (i.e. BRCA mutations) of the survival of young breast cancer patients.

In October 2015 I started working as a postdoc at the division of Molecular Pathology, again in the Group of Marjanka Schmidt. I work on the EU-funded B-CAST project, which aim is to understand the determinants of risk and prognosis of molecular subtypes of breast cancer. This will be accomplished through large-scale pathologic-molecular analyses of over 20.000 breast tumors, and the integration with germline, lifestyle/environmental and pathologic/clinical data.
