Thesis title: Understanding the Heterogeneity of ATP11B Expression in Endothelial Cells and their Impact on Small Vessel Disease
I started my career by studying Psychology in Maastricht. Very much fascinated by the biological side of things, I went on to do my Masters Degree in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience, focusing on biochemical underpinnings of neurological disorders. I completed my masters thesis with Prof Bill Colledge at the University of Cambridge, where I investigated gene expression changes in Kiss1 neurons in the arcuate nucleus before and after puberty. I am now part of Prof Anna William's lab here at the University of Edinburgh as a Clinical Research Training Fellow and PhD student. The focus of my research is the molecular build of small vessel disease, focusing on endothelial cells.
