Angelina Santoso, MD, MSc

Physician-researcher

Angelina Santoso started her PhD project in September 2017. Her main focus is sleep disturbances among newly diagnosed head and neck cancer (HNC) patients. She will be working with data collected in the NET-QUBIC, a Dutch multicenter observational cohort study following the course of HNC patients starting from shortly after diagnosis until five years follow-up. During her project she will explore the complex relationship of sleep disturbances, psycho-behavioral aspects, cancer-related symptoms, clinical biomarkers and survival of the newly diagnosed HNC patients. The findings will provide more insights in improving tailored care for the HNC patients in the future.

In 2014, after obtaining her medical doctor degree in Indonesia, Angelina moved to Nijmegen, The Netherlands to continue her study in Biomedical Sciences. She obtained her Master of Science degree from Radboud University Nijmegen in 2016. Subsequently she worked as a research assistant in the Geriatrics Department, Radboud University Medical Center Nijmegen. During her study and research career she has developed a keen interest in health-related outcome measures, including Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) and quality of life.
