Marc Thelen appointed professor of Quality in Medical Laboratory Care

27-03-2018 - Specialist in laboratory medicine Marc Thelen has been appointed professor (by special appointment) of Quality in Medical Laboratory Care at Radboud University / Radboud University medical center effectively from 1 March 2019

Marc Thelen (1967) works as a specialist in laboratory medicine and medical manager at the Amphia Breda laboratory for clinical chemistry and hematology.
He is also director of the SKML.

The chair was established by the Foundation for Quality Assessment of Medical Laboratory Diagnostics (SKML) and has been embedded in the Laboratory Medicine department of the Radboud University medical center. With this, both parties intend to give an impulse to the scientific development of quality in medical laboratory diagnostics through research, education and network utilisation.
Central theme will be the relationship between the measurability of the analytical quality of laboratory determinations and the medical decisions that are (partly) made based on their outcome.

The leading position of the SKML in the world of the analytical quality of medical laboratory diagnostics, combined with the enormous wealth of data in the SKML database and the embedding of Marc Thelen in (inter)national networks concerning quality care provide excellent opportunities to achieve those ambitions.
