Judith Bovée obtained her Medical Degree in 1997, after which she started with her PhD project under supervision of Prof. P.C.W. Hogendoorn. In 2000 she graduated cum laude on the thesis 'A molecular genetic characterisation of cartilaginous tumors'. After her residency in pathology at the LUMC she was registered as a pathologist in 2003. In 2013 she was promoted full professor at the same department. The title of her inaugural lecture was: “Molecules, Mechanisms, Personalized therapy”.  She is also involved in molecular diagnostics and was registered as a clinical scientist in pathology in 2013.
