Postdoctoral Fellow

Personal details


After internships with Hein te Riele (NKI, Amsterdam) and Bob Weinberg (Whitehead Institute, Boston), I've completed my Master Biomedical Sciences at the University of Amsterdam cum laude. In 2006, I've received an AMC Graduate School Scholarship and started my PhD with Jan Paul Medema (AMC, Amsterdam). In 2012, I've defended my thesis entitled "Molecular identification and targeting of colorectal cancer stem cells". Since November 2011, I've joined the Peeper group, where I'm responsible for creating a patient-derived xenograft (PDX) platform of metastatic melanoma. Using this platform, I'm performing in vivo screens to identify new drug targets for melanoma.
