Background

Floryne Buishand graduated summa cum laude from The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Utrecht University in 2010 and subsequently completed an internship there in Small Animal Medicine. During her internship she was able to obtain a stipend from The Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development, which enabled her to start her PhD studies alongside her clinical residency training in Small Animal Surgery of the European College of Veterinary Surgeons (ECVS). After completing her PhD, she obtained a Rubicon Fellowship from The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research, which enabled her to perform postdoctoral research at The National Cancer Institute (NCI) at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA. At NCI she studied genomic changes associated with endocrine and colorectal cancers with the ultimate goal of identifying novel diagnostic and prognostic markers, as well as novel therapeutic targets. In 2018 she moved to the UK to take on a position as Lecturer in Small Animal Surgery at the R(D)SVS.
