I am a molecular biologist in the field of translational colorectal cancer research. In my PhD project (dept. of Pathology, VUmc) was the discovery and development of protein biomarkers for colorectal cancer (CRC), with a specific interest to apply these for clinical tests. I moved as a postdoc to the Oncoproteomics Laboratory (dept. of Oncology, VUmc) and there I have been extending these research lines, including microvesicle-mediated secreted proteins as biomarkers and identification of proteins that are associated with adenoma-to-carcinoma progression. My main focus now is on the validation of protein biomarkers for early detection of CRC in stool.
