He is the president of the Dutch Peritoneal Oncology Group, secretary of the Dutch Pancreatic Cancer Group, executive board member of the Peritoneal Surface Oncology Group International, medical advisor of the Netherlands Comprehensive Cancer Organisation (IKNL), professor at GROW Research School of the Maastricht University and participates in several national and international research projects.  

From FAIR data to FAIR knowledge – towards bridging the gap for clinical practice. 

Healthcare is confronted with a data-explosion. Adhering to FAIR data principles is an important pre-requisite for being able to exploit this data for new knowledge generation. But with this data-explosion, healthcare also needs to deal with an ever-growing amount of knowledge. For patients to benefit, innovative technology is required to support physicians to deal with this knowledge explosion. The Netherlands comprehensive cancer organisation (IKNL) responds to these challenges not only by applying FAIR principles to data but also to knowledge generated from that data. Therefore, IKNL has developed  (i) an open source personal health train infrastructure (distributedlearning.ai) for distributed learning from international cancer registry and other data, (ii) FAIR decision support resources and services (oncoguide) for data driven national clinical practice guidelines and prediction models.
