Marjanka Schmidt group


Marjanka Schmidt


Personal details


Marjanka Schmidt was awarded a Translational Cancer Research Award from the Dutch Cancer Society in 2009 to start her own research line. Her research line focuses on the effects of genetic variants on risk of breast cancer subtypes, prognosis and long-term outcome of breast cancer, combining the areas of epidemiological and molecular research. One major promise is that advances in the genetics area will lead to personalized medicine, where preventive and therapeutic interventions for complex diseases can be individually tailored to a person's genetic profile. Marjanka's group aims to contribute to the genome-based applications in health care practice by elucidating the role of germline variants in breast cancer risk and prognosis by molecular and genetic epidemiological studies, as well as addressing ethical, legal and societal aspects of genomics.
