Maurice Jansen is trained as a Molecular Cell Biologist at Wageningen University (1987-1992), The Netherlands, and obtained a Ph.D. degree in Internal Medicine at the University Hospital Maastricht (1993-1998), The Netherlands. Jansen worked as a Postdoc at the Plastic Surgery Institute of the Erasmus University (1999-2001), Rotterdam, The Netherlands and at the Department of Medical Oncology of the Erasmus MC (2001-2006), Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Currently, Jansen works as a Senior Scientist at the Department of Medical Oncology of the Erasmus University Medical Center-Daniel den Hoed Cancer Center (from 2006 to date), Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Jansen's research within the research program Integrated Genomics of Treatment Resistance (PI: Associate Professor Dr. P. M. J. J. Berns) within the theme Cancer Genomics and Proteomics (Coordinators: Professor Dr. J. A. Foekens and Dr. S. Sleijfer) focuses on the molecular biology of breast cancer and endocrine treatment response. Jansen's fields of expertise are genomic profiling of DNA genetic and epigenetic status and mRNA and miR expression in cell lines and tissue specimens; integrated analysis of genomic profiles in relationship with mutation status and drug response; biomarker discovery for drug response; assay development for blood specimen analyses; druggable target discovery by functional studies of biomarkers using (combined) gene knockdown; chromatin immunoprecipitation and drug response analyses.
