Personal details


I am molecular cancer biologist with training in translational medicinal research focusing on (epi)genomics of drug-resistance. I carried out my PhD research (2011-2016) at University Medical Center Groningen under supervision of Prof. Steven de Jong and Prof. Ate van der Zee. During my doctoral studies, I used whole (epi)genomic approaches along with functional validation methods in patient-derived cell lines and xenografts (PDX) models to identify predictive biomarkers to therapy response and investigate resistance mechanisms of gynecologic cancers towards chemotherapy. 

In July 2017, I joined the Peeper Lab to work on discovering novel therapeutic targets and improving targeted- and immunotherapy in melanoma using functional (epi)genomics screens.
