I started as an undergraduate student in Rene Bernards lab in 1995 and have continued working in his group as a PhD student, postdoc and currently as a staff scientist. My main focus has been to develop and perform functional genetic screens to gain more insight into mechanisms of action of oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes.

Furthermore, I use functional genomic approaches to identify mechanisms of primary and acquired drug resistance. The ultimate goal of all these studies is to translate novel findings into more optimal anti-cancer treatment strategies. I find it very motivating to contribute to this important goal.
