Dr. Julie Nonnekens

Dr. Julie Nonnekens received her MSc in Medical Biotechnology at Wageningen University, The Netherlands in 2009. She obtained her PhD in cancer biology with the focus on DNA repair mechanisms at the University of Toulouse, France in 2013. After that, she was a postdoc at the Hubrecht Institute working on ribosome biogenesis in cancer and longevity. In 2014 Julie joined the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam, The Netherlands with a joined appointment as Assistant Professor at the Department of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine and Department of Molecular Genetics. Her group is studying DNA damage repair mechanisms to better understand the underlying radiobiology of molecular 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. She is secretary of the Netherlands Society for Radiobiology (NVRB) and scientific committee member of the Dutch Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (NVRO).
