PhD candidate

Madelaine works in a collaborative effort of the Bijlsma and the Van Laarhoven labs at the AMC and the Van Eijck group at the EMC, Rotterdam. Her research activities include:

  • establish organoid models for metastatic PDAC
  • employ organoid technology to predict response to systemic treatments
  • correlate gene expression-based subclasses of PDAC to organoid responses to currently applicable chemotherapeutics.
  • identify and develop effective novel treatments based on response data and molecular information.


Madelaine’s work is supported by Stichting Overleven met Alveesklierkanker.
