Prof. Stefan Sleijfer, MD PhD (Head department Medical Oncology)

Stefan Sleijfer“I have an interest in both clinical and translational studies. With respect to clinical studies I focus on clinical studies in soft tissue sarcoma and early clinical trials (fase I/II). Together with Prof. dr. John Foekens I coordinate the research line “Translational Cancer Genomics and Proteomics” of the Department of Medical Oncology where I focus on prognostic and predictive factors, and so-called liqued biopsies (circulating tumor cells and cell-free DNA).

I am a board member of the Center for Personalized Cancer Treatment (CPCT), a Dutch national consortium aiming to improve personalized treatment for cancer patients by DNA sequencing metastatic tumor tissue. In addition, I am a member of the Scientific Board of the Dutch Cancer Society (KWF) and for that same organization he chairs the committee for “Translationeel en Toegepast Onderzoek” (TTO), which is the most important funding source for translational cancer research in the Netherlands."
