Expertise

Since February I am appointed as Head of Department of Medical Genetics, University Hospital Brussel and as 1 March as Professor in Cinical Genetics at the Free University of Brussels.

As of this career movement I became active in the field of reproductive genetics.

Between 2005 and 2019 I was clinical geneticist at the department of Clinical Genetics at the LUMC. My main interests here were hereditary cancers, with focus on colorectal tumor syndromes, melanoma and endocrine tumors, like paraganglioma.  My research focused on improving the identification and management of patients with inherited tumor syndromes.

Currently, I am still involved in the studies of three PhD students that work on different types of hereditary cancer syndromes.

Between 2015 and 2019, I was chairman of the Dutch Clinical Genetics Society.
