Personal profile


Since February 2019 I am appointed as Head of Department of Medical Genetics, University Hospital Brussel and as Professor in Clinical Genetics at the Free University of Brussels. Between 2005 and 2019 I was a clinical geneticist at the Department of Clinical Genetics at the LUMC. My main interests here were hereditary cancers, with a 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. Between 2015 and 2019, I was chairman of the Dutch Clinical Genetics Society.

As of my career movement, I became active in the field of reproductive genetics. Currently, I am involved in the studies of five PhD students that work in different fields of genetics: including cancer, infertility, decision making and psychosocial aspects of WGS.
