In the national screening for colon cancer, people with a heightened chance of anomaly are selected from the general population. This happens by way of a stool test. In her inaugural lecture as professor of Gastrointestinal Oncology, Evelien Dekker will argue that further improvement of this selection method is definitely possible, and should as a result be investigated further.
Prof. E. Dekker, professor of Gastrointestinal Oncology: 'A polyp walks into a doctor's office' (Komt een poliep bij de dokter).
This event is open to the public.
(Please note: this inaugural lecture will be held in Dutch.)
