Marieke Vollebergh

I started working on my PhD research at the Netherlands Cancer Institute in 2007, in which I investigated whether certain DNA characteristics could predict sensitivities to certain types of chemotherapy. I started working as medical oncologist in 2019 and mainly deliver care to patients with gastrointestinal cancer; primarily those with esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, or colon cancer that has spread to the liver. At the Netherlands Cancer Institute we have a highly specialized and dedicated team of radiation therapists and surgeons, ready to find the treatment plan that best fits every patient. This collaboration, the commitment of our entire team, and the ability to implement our always increasing knowledge (even about the smallest cellular levels) through research - most of which is conducted at the Netherlands Cancer Institute itself - makes my work at the institute unique and exciting.
