PhD defence ceremony

Femke van der Leij explores effective strategies for identifying patients in an early stage of breast cancer, with a low risk of recurrence. The aim is to prevent excessive treatment. She also looks at groups of patients treated in the past, trying to uncover prognostic indicators that can predict patients at high-risk and low-risk of recurrence.
