She was group leader at the TNO Institute for Applied Sciences (Gaubius Institute) and was appointed in 2000 as professor of Molecular Epidemiology at the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC).  She initiated a section of Molecular Epidemiology section within the department of Biomedical Data Sciences. Slagboom is chair of the Dutch Society for Research on Ageing (DuSRA) and coordinator of the public-private initiative DuSRA-VOILA (Vitality Oriented Innovations for the Lifecourse of the Ageing Society). The studies of her group focus on genetic determinants, biomarkers and pathways involved in metabolic health, ageing and longevity by human cohort and intervention studies. Slagboom is PI of the Leiden Longevity Study and BBMRI-omics and Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing.
