Jan-Jakob Sonke group
Group leader, Ph. D.
Jan-Jakob Sonke received his PhD degree in the field of room
acoustics from the Delft University of Technology in 2000.
Subsequently he started his career in the field of radiation
oncology as a post doc with the characterization and clinical
implementation of amorphous silicon (a-Si) electronic portal
imaging devices in the lab of Marcel van Herk. In 2005 he received
his first KWF grant and became a staff scientist in the department
of radiation oncology. In 2009 he was appointed junior group leader
(assistant professor) on adaptive radiation therapy at the
Netherlands Cancer Institute.
His scientific contributions include the development and
clinical implementation of four dimensional CBCT guided
radiotherapy that allows the characterization of patients
respiration just prior to radiation delivery. Currently he leads a
research group focusing on (4D) CBCT image quality, image guided
and adaptive radiotherapy, incorporating functional imaging for
optimal dose redistribution, and normal tissue complication
He received the Estro Varian Physics award.
