Beste Susanne, ik wil jou enorm bedanken voor je begeleiding de afgelopen jaren.
Ik kijk met veel plezier terug op onze samenwerking en alle overleg dat zelfs op de
meest onmogelijke tijden kon plaats vinden.
Beste Koos, je inbreng zorgde altijd voor eenvoud en overzicht. Daarnaast was je
kritische blik van buiten de kliniek voor mij een stimulans om de resultaten breder te
Dear Neveen, we could fill a library with all the corrigenda. I really appreciate that you
taught me how to verbalize the scientific results. I do realise, however, that this is an
understatement for the efforts you put in my thesis.
Bij het doen van onderzoek naast een full time baan is de hulp van een oncologie
verpleegkundige onontbeerlijk. Jeanne, bedankt voor alle werk dat je mij uit handen
hebt genomen.
Beste Rutger, Bas en Saskia: de MRI onderzoeken op de afdeling radiologie waren
niet mogelijk geweest zonder jullie toegewijde hulp.
Ik wil alle patiënten hartelijk bedanken voor hun participatie in de studies beschreven
in dit proefschrift.
Go en Lot, jullie hebben altijd vertrouwen gehad in mijn wetenschappelijke
capaciteiten. Dubbel trapeze spinakerzeilen blijft een grote uitdaging!
Pierre, je voortdurende interesse heeft mij geholpen om het onderzoek naar
een hoger niveau te brengen. Niemand anders kon met zoveel plezier naar mijn
onderzoeksresultaten luisteren. Het enthousiasme waarmee je nieuwe ideeën
aanreikt werkt aanstekelijk.
Lieve Conny, jij hebt mij geleerd om nuchter tegen de zaken aan te kijken. Dit
proefschrift is daar een voorbeeld van.
De bemanning van de Bornrif wens ik immer een behouden vaart.
Lieve Sanne, zonder jouw steun was dit nooit gelukt. De uren achter mijn computer
hebben een zware belasting gelegd op de spaarzame vrije tijd samen, maar je
hebt mij alle ruimte gegeven om dit “boekje” af te schrijven. Het wordt tijd om onze
gezamenlijke energie in nieuwe doelen te steken.
Curriculum Vitae
Curriculum Vitae
Peter-Paul Michiel Willemse (1978, Rotterdam) graduated in 1998 at the athenaeum
of “Het Nassau College” in Assen. Subsequently he studied chemistry for one year
and from 1999 onwards he studied medicine at Leiden University, The Netherlands.
He qualified as MD from Leiden University in November 2006. During his studies he
was treasurer of the board of the Leiden University Medical Students Congres and
chairman of the Leiden Student Sailing Association of the student fraternity ‘Minerva’.
In 2007 he started collecting data for studies that led to a formal PhD project at the
Department of Clinical Oncology of the Leiden University Medical Center under the
supervision of Prof. Dr. S. Osanto. Between 2008 and 2010 he was employed as a
physician at the department of surgery of the Leiden University Medical Center and
at the Departments of urology of two large peripheral hospitals (HagaZiekenhuis and
Medisch Centrum Haaglanden) in The Hague, The Netherlands.
He started his residency in urology in 2011, first at the Department of surgery of the
Reinier de Graaf Hospital in Delft (supervision by Dr. M. van der Elst) and from 2013
onwards at the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam under the supervision of Dr.
P.C.M.S. Verhagen.
He lives with Sanne Kloosterman in Rotterdam.
