Henk lost several beloved ones to cancer, including his father at the age of 6 years.

He was trained (1985) as a molecular biologist in Leiden in the lab of Lex van der Eb and started working in the lab of carcinogenesis and mutagenesis at RIVM in Bilthoven. In 1996 he finished his PhD. with Hans Bos and Willem van Vloten as promotores in Utrecht on the genetic changes in tumors from animal models in skin and intestinal cancer. In 2000 he started collaborating with the Institute of Public Health Genomics (IPHG) at Maastricht University with rare diseases and nutrigenomics as topics. Henk’s output is summarized in Google Scholar.
