Mr. Adriaan van den Brule PhD, clinical molecular biologist in pathology (Den Bosch) 

“Molecular Pathology and “precision medicine” benefit from multidisciplinary consultation between the clinician, pathologist and clinical molecular biologist. Furthermore, applied scientific research improves the diagnostic quality.”

Adriaan van den Brule (1961) studied Biology at the Catholic University of Nijmegen. After the studies for his thesis in the field of HPV and cervical cancer (dept. of Pathology VUmc Amsterdam), he was responsible for the development of Molecular Diagnostics within the departments of Pathology, Oncology and Infectious diseases. In 2002 he became head of Molecular Diagnostics (Pathology and Microbiology) at PAMM, Eindhoven. From 2011 onwards, he has been working as clinical molecular biologist at Jeroen Bosch hospital. Since 2012 he has also had a part-time appointment at Rijnstate, Arnhem. His main interests lie in applied scientific research e.g. in viral oncogenesis, HPV, EBV and recently colorectal cancers. At the moment he participates actively in several local and national advisory committees and at the European Congress for Molecular Diagnostics. Adriaan van den Brule has obtained his registration as a medical molecular microbiologist and clinical molecular biologist in Pathology, recently acknowledged by the NVVP.
