In memoriam: Joop Kroes
We received the sad news that Joop Kroes passed away last month. Joop was one of the first patient representatives of Oncode’s Clinical Advisory Board (CAB). He has always been full of enthusiasm for the CAB and Oncode’s Clinical Proof of Concept Programme.
Geert Kops, Head of Oncode Institute, says: “Joop was a very enthusiastic, optimistic and friendly member of the Oncode community. He was a patient representative within the Clinical Advisory Board and was involved since the start of Oncode. He helped set up and shape our Clinical Proof of Concept Programme and reviewed many projects within that programme. He has been living with bowel cancer since 2009 and devoted a lot of his time to the bowel cancer foundation (Stichting Darmkanker). We will miss Joop very much and wish his family and friends a lot of strength in this difficult time.”
