Axel Bex

I started working at the Netherlands Cancer Institute in 1999. I am now a member of staff at the Urology department. I treat all urological tumors, although my specialty is kidney cell carcinoma.

I lead the multidisciplinary kidney cancer focus group at the Netherlands Cancer Institute and am internationally involved in the European Association for guidelines. As of 2019, I have been working part-time at the NKI, combining my work with my work as a medical head of a special kidney cancer clinic at the Royal Free London. In 2020 I was appointed professor at University College London (UCL).

Despite no longer working at the NKI every day, I highly value the work environment at the institute. I appreciate the ease of access between colleagues. We all concern ourselves with the same illness and share the same goal. That greatly benefits our patient care.
