Mr. Peter de Bruin, MD PhD, pathologist (Nieuwegein) 

“Digital Pathology in our laboratories improves our diagnostic qualities by enabling further subspecialization . Furthermore, Digital Pathology facilitates automated screening of immunohistochemical stained specimens, e.g. receptor detection, thereby directing the choice for therapy by the clinician more objectively.”

Peter de Bruin finished his training in Pathology at the VUmc in 1999. Afterwards, he worked as a pathologist at the Medical Center Alkmaar for 2 years. In 2001 he continued his career at the St. Antonius hospital Utrecht/Nieuwegein.
