Biography

T.J. (Tom) Snijders, PhD, completed his medical studies and his Neurology residency in the UMC Utrecht. During his training, he obtained a PhD-degree in the field of chronic pain medicine. He sub-specialized in Neuro-oncology during his residency.

Since 2011, he works as a neurologist and assistant professor in the UMC Utrecht. His practice encompasses all aspects of neuro-oncological patient care. His scientific work focuses on primary brain tumors, specifically gliomas. He is the co-coordinator, with prof. Elly Hol, of the Disease Area Neuro-oncology of the UMC Utrecht Brain Center.  He is co-supervisor of 5 completed or ongoing PhD-trajectories. He is also involved in providing and evaluating experimental treatments (international clinical trials) in the UMC Utrecht.

Research interests:

  • Validation and innovation of imaging techniques for brain tumors, including MRI-scans and PET-scans
  • Pseudoprogression in glioma and other brain tumors
  • Cognitive symptoms in glioma patients
  • Epilepsy due to brain tumors
  • Liquid biopsy in primary brain tumors
  • Focused Ultrasound and blood-brain-barrier disruption for brain tumor treatment
  • The multidisciplinary Team Neuro-Oncology of the UMC Utrecht aims to provide patients with the most recent innovative (experimental) treatments for brain tumors as part of clinical studies.
