Doctoral Fellow

Ghent University

Drawing inspiration from my clinical experience, I started a PhD fellowship with a focus in paediatric oncology at Ghent University, funded by the Research Foundation Flanders, as part of my residency in paediatrics. Previous research into the genetic predisposition of paediatric cancer, where I performed and analyzed whole genome DNA sequencing data, spurred an interest in bio-informatics applied to paediatric oncology. With this combined medical and fundamental skill set, I hope to contribute to understanding fundamental biology, improving diagnostic procedures and treatment of neuroblastoma and other paediatric malignancies.
