Personal details


August 2013, I achieved a master degree in Oncology at VU University Amsterdam. Today, I'm a PhD student studying ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) of the breast. Population-based breast cancer screening and implementation of digital mammography has resulted in an increased incidence of DCIS, but not in a decreased incidence of advanced breast cancer, suggesting overtreatment of DCIS lesions. Within this study I'm aiming to find biomarkers to distinguish harmless from aggressive lesions. Subsequently, these accurate biomarkers may aid to decide which woman should be treated and which one not, which creates the potential of sparing these patients intensive treatment.
