I work as a pediatric oncologist in the Solid Tumors Department at Princess Máxima Center for Pediatric Oncology and coordinate the care of children with bone and soft tissue sarcomas there. I am chairman of the SKION Protocol Committee Rhabdomyosarcomas, and chairman of the SKION Disease Committee Bottumoren. The Máxima Sarcoma group work closely with the research groups in the laboratory and with international sarcoma experts worldwide. In addition, I am the chair of the SKION Taskforce Pediatric Oncogenetics, which deals with children with a predisposition to malignancies. I am also chair of the European Soft Tissue Sarcoma Study Group.
