Prof. Dr. Manon van Engeland

Inventor and Co-founder

Manon is a principal Investigator/Professor of Pathobiology of Cancer at the Maastricht University Medical Center. Manon is an expert in the identification and application of DNA methylation biomarkers in cancer and has a track record in identifying and developing cancer biomarkers of commercial value (NDRG4 for colorectal cancer now part of the well-known COLOGUARD intestinal cancer test). For Manon, the translation of high-quality academic research to a high impact clinical product is the most important motivation to develop the LY75 innovation through MLA Diagnostics as it will create better outlooks for the patient.
