Personal details


I'm a PhD student in the group of Emile Voest. I received my training as a biomedical scientist and medical doctor in Utrecht, San Diego and Oxford. My project focuses on the potential of applying organoid technology to personalised cancer therapy. Specifically, we aim to predict therapy response and stratify patients to certain therapies based on drug screens in organoids. Second, we attempt to use organoids for immunotherapy by exploiting their potential to evoke tumor-specific T cell responses. The opportunity of working with this new model system and operating on the crossroads between the lab and the clinic makes this a very interesting and exciting project.
