Marlous Hoogstraat

Postdoctoral Fellow


After finishing my bachelor bio-informatics in Leiden, I started a PhD at the Center for Personalized Cancer Treatment at the UMC Utrecht. My main projects involved the analyses of somatic variants, copy number changes and gene expression data. We used these data to compare and characterize multiple tumor samples from single patients, for instance from different metastases or before and after treatment.

At the NKI, I will use the same data types, but now my main focus will be on predicting response to therapies in breast cancer patients and characterization of the different breast cancer subtypes.
