Personal profile

Research interests

The research efforts of my group concentrate on the application of PET imaging in oncology as part of (immunotherapy) drug development and as a tool for patient selection as well as treatment evaluation.



In the clinic I am specialized in the treatment of patients with breast cancer, endocrine tumors and patients who want to participate in phase I clinical trials. My ultimate goal as a medical oncologist is to have an effective cancer treatment for every individual patient.
