I completed a MSc in Oncology, followed by a PhD at the VU University Medical Center, where I worked on the cancer predisposition syndrome Fanconi anemia (FA). We identified mutations in SLX4 as causative for a subtype of FA and I investigated the FA DNA repair pathway in sporadic head and neck cancer. As a postdoctoral fellow at the Leiden University Medical Center, I continued working in the field of DNA repair.
Now at the NKI, my project aims to improve and help implement a diagnostic test to classify disease-causing mutations in Lynch syndrome, a form of hereditary colorectal cancer.
