Emmelien Aten, MD, PhD

As a clinical geneticist, I have expertise in seeing patients with NF1, NF2 and Schwannomatosis. I see the difficulties and uncertainties patients have to deal with and this hugely motivates me to take NF2/Schwannomatosis research forward. I have a medical and biomedical degree and a PhD in genetics, which allows me to combine clinical expertise with research, focusing on pathophysiology, tumor biology and their genetic background. I am a member of the multidisciplinary NF2-team within the LUMC’s center of expertise for vestibular schwannoma .
