About Bart Kiemeney

Bart Kiemeney's research activities lie in the field of the epidemiology of cancer, with a focus on the genetic and clinical epidemiology of urological tumours. This interest originates directly from his doctoral dissertation in 1993 ('Prognosis of superficial bladder carcinoma') and a Netherlands Cancer Society fellowship at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore (training in genetic epidemiology and involvement in the research program on hereditary prostate cancer).

Large-scale projects have been and are being conducted on Mendelian and multifactorial inheritance of bladder and prostate cancer, including Genome Wide Association analyses, and on the efficacy of new diagnostic and prognostic tumor markers in bladder and prostate cancer. Recently, the focus is also on the role of lifestyle in cancer-specific prognosis.
