Previous research

2015-2016 Cytoskeleton dynamics
(Akhmanova lab, Dept. Cell Biology, UU)
Research on the role of microtubules and MTOC involvement in sprouting angiogenesis (blood vessel formation) in 3D using gel-embedded endothelial spheroids.

2014-2015 STARR-seq
(Laboratory of Translational Immunology, UMC)
Development of massively parallel genome-wide DNA regulatory region screen for mammalian genomes (STARR-seq). Using this novel high-throughput whole-genome assay, we could identity and quantify the activity of DNA regulatory elements (e.g. enhancers) that play critical roles in cell type specification and disease pathogenesis.

2013 Fungal physiology
(Westerdijk Fungal Biodiversity Institute)
Research on sugar-releasing capacity in progeny of thermophilic fungi selected for growth on complex substrates. By profiling growth on various types of media, differences in CAZyme secretion could be obtained for improved (lignocellulosic, or second-gen) biofuel production.
