Personal profile

Research interests

Lidewij Henneman is co-Director of the Amsterdam Reproduction & Development research institute.
Her research focuses on the implementation, dynamics and impact of new genetic applications in preconception, prenatal and neonatal screening. She has expertise in both qualitative and quantitative research methodologies to assess the views and experiences of (potential) users such as health care professionals, patients and wider society.

Specific projects are in the field of community genetics and public health genomics such as:
• implementation of preconception carrier screening and non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT);
• genetic risk and (reproductive) decision making;
• genetic knowledge, communication and education.

She is board member of the Dutch NIPT Consortium and thereby coordinates research on women’s perspectives on NIPT (TRIDENT studies). She won the EMGO+ Societal Impact Award 2016 (topic NIPT), and received the Dutch Public Health Award (Volksgezondheidsprijs) for her PhD thesis on Preconceptional cystic fibrosis carrier screening.
She (co-)published over 100 international articles (H-index 26) and supervised 13 PhD students.
