Judith Boer
Personalized treatment for pediatric leukemia patients

Dr. Judith M. Boer obtained her MSc degree in Biomedical Sciences at Leiden University in 1991 and her PhD degree in cell biology and genetics at Erasmus University Rotterdam in 1997. Part of her PhD research on the role of oncogenic fusion proteins in acute myeloid leukemia was performed at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, US. As a postdoc, Judith pioneered array technology and omics data analysis at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and continued this line of research as an assistant professor at Leiden University Medical Center. She joined the Den Boer research group in 2010 and moved to the Princess Máxima Center for pediatric oncology in Utrecht in 2018, where she is now a permanent staff member co-supervising PhD students on oncogenomics and precision medicine projects. Bridging from lab to clinic, she is involved in the development of genetic stratification for first-line therapy and identification of targets for precision medicines in individual patients to improve the outcome of pediatric leukemia patients.
