I have been working as a medical geneticist at the Netherlands Cancer Institute since 2022. During my consultations, I see people who have been diagnosed with cancer, or who have a family history of cancer

When I'm not working in patient care, I conduct scientific research into medical ethics. Due to the technical developments in DNA diagnostics, the possibilities in hereditary testing are increasing. This means that we are able to answer more of our patients' questions. These technological advances do pose new ethical dilemmas. The more information we can draw from DNA, the more we need to think about what we should be allowed to use this information for. It is important to me that patients themselves have a say in this.
