PhD defence ceremony

Manon van der Vlugt's research focuses on colorectal cancer screening using a technique called fecal immunochemical testing. She investigates the effectiveness of this type of screening. She evaluates participation rates and adherence over multiple screening rounds, compares FIT-based screening to endoscopy screening and studies cancers not detected within the screening programme.
