Thomas Willigenburg studied Medicine at Utrecht University. During his medical studies, he did multiple internships (both clinical and research-related) at the Radiation Oncology department of the UMC Utrecht.
After obtaining his Medical degree (cum laude) in 2018 and working as a medical docter for a while, Thomas started a PhD in 2019 at the Radiation Oncology department of the UMC Utrecht, focused on MR-Linac treatment for prostate cancer.
During his PhD, he obtained a master’s degree in Clinical Epidemiology and Medical Statistics at Utrecht University.
Thomas’ work focuses on working towards the clinical implementation of newly developed workflows and methodologies for MR-Linac treatment of prostate cancer. Furthermore, evaluation of current MR-Linac prostate cancer treatment and (future) implementation of MR-Linac treatment for other prostate cancer-related indications, such as recurrent prostate cancer, are key topics.
