Dr. B. (Bianca) Goemans

Pediatric oncologist

Daily confrontation with the effects of childhood cancer and its treatment motivates me to try to develop new treatments that are more effective and less toxic than those we use today.

As a pediatric oncologist, I specialize in treating children with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and acute lymphatic leukemia (ALL). I accompany children and parents throughout the treatment process, making the diagnosis and treatment plan. I accompany patients both inpatient (during admissions) and outpatient. I also do research on the genetic characteristics of cancer cells of patients for whom there is no longer a standard treatment (ITHER study), in order to use these genetic characteristics for a specific cancer cell-targeted treatment. I am chair of SKION's protocol committee for myeloid leukemia and TMD in Down syndrome and a member of the protocol committees on initial and relapsed AML.
