I studied Biomedical Sciences followed by a research master in Oncology at the VU University. For my final practical training I worked in the lab of Fred van Leeuwen at the NKI. Afterwards I joined the Hein te Riele lab as PhD student where I now study DNA replication stress in cancer.
It is my ambition to identify dependencies of cells suffering from replication stress. Since DNA replication is perturbed in cancer cells specifically, targeting such vulnerabilities may have therapeutic value. I aim to identify these vulnerabilities in vitro and test their potential to halt tumor growth in vivo.
