Biomedical Sciences – MSc Cancer Genomics & Developmental Biology (Utrecht University); University of Life Sciences (MSc cum Laudae)

Research interests

I am working on mesenchymal stromal (stem) cells (MSCs) and their role in hematopoietic support. Project also spans the clinical part in which data we gather during my phD will ultimately lead to improvement of clinical expansion protocols of MSCs.
