Personal details


My project aims at the development of prevention strategies for intestinal cancer in Lynch syndrome (LS). With the use of mouse models, I focus on distinct factors that may influence the pathogenesis of colorectal cancer in LS patients, and investigate whether preventive measures can be taken to reduce tumor incidence and improve treatment options in this patient group.

Before starting my PhD in August 2015, I obtained my BSc in Biomedical Sciences and
MSc in Oncology at the VU university in Amsterdam.
