  • Biography

    Following my undergraduate studies in Medicine in Leuven, Belgium, I received my postgraduate specialist training in Paediatrics/Paediatric Haematology and Oncology at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Brussels, Belgium, and Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.

    I read for my PhD in leukaemia molecular genetics at Barts and the London Medical School, Queen Mary University of London. Subsequently I spent one year at the Teenage Cancer Trust Unit at University College London Hospital and six years at the Children’s and Young Person Unit at the Royal Marsden Hospital/Institute of Cancer Research.

    My personal interest is the improvement of medical care for Teenagers and Young Adults with Leukaemia or Lymphoma, who receive treatment at the Teenage and Young Adult Unit at the Great North Children’s Hospital. My research programme at the Northern Institute for Cancer Research is aimed at improving our understanding and treatment of leukaemia and lymphoma. In addition, I am investigating why teenagers and young adults suffer frequent side effects and how we can further improve their cancer treatment.
