In 2006, I started medical school at Leiden University Medical Center and have been a radiation oncologist in training since 2014 also at the LUMC. Since 2015 I have combined my training with a PhD program. My research focuses on the value of a brachytherapy boost after external beam radiation therapy in elderly patients with rectal cancer who are not fit for surgery. The HERBERT study is the main focus of my PhD and I will present the final analyses of this study at the conference.
