As a hematopathologist, I work on diagnostics of all types of hematological malignancies using a comprehensive panel of different techniques. Moreover, my main research interest involves Hodgkin lymphoma, with a strong focus on interactions between tumor cells and the microenvironment. In addition, I also have a long standing interest in genetic susceptibility. My areas of expertise are: immunology, tumor cell biology, genetic association studies and molecular diagnostics in pathology. I actively participate in international (EORTC) and national (HOVON) clinical trials.

A population-based study of transformed marginal zone lymphoma: identifying outcome-related characteristics
Published in: Blood cancer journal
Histological transformation of marginal zone lymphoma (tMZL) into diffuse large B-cell lymphoma is associated with poor outcomes. Clinical characteristics associated with transformation risk and outcome after transformation are largely unknown due to scarcity of data. In this population-based study, competing risk analyses were performed to elucidate clinical characteristics associated with developing transformation among 1793 MZL patients using the Netherlands Cancer Registry. Cox regression analyses were performed to elucidate clinical characteristics associated with risk of relapse and mortality after transformation. Transformation occurred in 75 (4%) out of 1793 MZL...

A significant proportion of classic Hodgkin lymphoma recurrences represents clonally unrelated second primary lymphoma
Published in: Blood Advances
Despite high cure rates in classic Hodgkin lymphoma (cHL), relapses are observed. Whether relapsed cHL represents second primary lymphoma or an underlying T-cell lymphoma (TCL) mimicking cHL is under-investigated. To analyze the nature of cHL recurrences, in-depth clonality testing of immunoglobulin (IG) and T-cell receptor (TR) rearrangements was performed in paired cHL diagnosis and recurrences of 60 patients, supported by targeted mutation analysis of lymphoma-associated genes. Clonal IG rearrangements were detected by next-generation sequencing (NGS) in 69/120 (58%) diagnosis and recurrence samples. The clonal relationship could be established...
