Postdoctoral fellow

Personal details


I obtained my PhD degree in January 2011 in the group of Peter Hordijk at Sanquin. During this PhD training I studied the role of the RhoGTPase Rac1 in cell motility and cellular junction integrity. After obtaining my PhD degree, I joined the group of Ian Macara as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Virginia. I developed a peptide-based strategy to analyze the importance of the orientation of the mitotic spindle during mammary gland development, for which I obtained the NWO Rubicon grant. Starting October 2013 I joined the group of Jos Jonkers to continue this research. I will use this peptide-based strategy to develop transgenic mouse models to study the contribution of spindle mis-orientation to breast cancer development.
