Fifty thousand euros raised for the fight against cancer, including the research of Daan Geijs

The ‘Gruune Cross’ is a 60 kilometer long bike ride through the beautiful Achterhoek organized by Lions Doetinchem De Graafschap. On the 1st of July 2022, nearly 100 people have committed themselves to cycling together to raise money for important cancer research, including the research of Daan Geijs. Together with the cyclists and sponsors a total amount of €53.320 was raised.

Daan's research focuses on the clinical implementation of automated skin cancer decision making. He uses end-to-end learning to decide if a whole-slide-image contains basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and its subtype. After the excision of the BCC, done by the dermatologist, a semantic segmentation model checks if the cutting margins are free of tumor.

Daan Geijs and his team led by Geert Litjens would like to thank ‘Stichting Lions Share Doetinchem De Graafschap’ and everyone who contributed in any way to the success.
