On 13 April 2018 the first Adrienne Cullen lecture took place in the University Medical Centre of Utrecht. Adrienne Cullen is a patient of whom a smear was taken for examination in 2011. The results, however, did not get transferred from the pathologist to the treating gynaecologist. It was only two years later that this error was discovered by chance. Meanwhile, the cancer had already spread in the patient’s body.
