Dr. Julie Nonnekens

Dr. Julie Nonnekens received her MSc in Biotechnology at Wageningen University (NL) in 2009. She obtained her PhD in cancer biology with the focus on DNA repair mechanisms at the University of Toulouse (FR) in 2013. Following, she was a postdoc at the Hubrecht Institute (NL) working on ribosome biogenesis in cancer and longevity.

In 2014 Julie joined the Erasmus MC Rotterdam (NL) Departments of Radiology & Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Genetics and she is now Associate Professor and leads a research group. The research of her group bridges the interests of both departments in the field of DNA damage repair mechanisms and nuclear medicine to study the radiobiology of targeted radionuclide anticancer treatment in order to ultimately optimize treatment regimens.

Julie has received several (young investigator) awards and is principal investigator on various research grants including the prestigious ERC starting grant. She is chair of the Netherlands Society of Radiobiology and co-founder of the European working group on Radiobiology of Molecular Radionuclide Therapy.
