The Genetics of Breast Cancer 
and Head & Neck Paragangliomas

Welcome to our pages...

The science projects under this program are being run jointly at the Department of Human Genetics & the Department of Pathology, Leiden University Medical Center, The Netherlands, and coordinated by Prof. Dr. Cees J. Cornelisse, Dr. Peter Devilee, and Dr. Anne-Marie Cleton-Jansen. The main aims are the characterization of genes involved in the tumorigenesis of breast cancer and the elucidation of the gene-defect underlying inherited head and neck paragangliomas.
