My work at Artemis:
For the ZAPI project (Zoonoses Anticipation and Preparedness Initiative) I am setting up an ELISA for the glycoprofiling of antibodies in order to find a correlation between certain glycosylation patterns and the prediction of disease outcome. Also this may constitute an important tool to investigate immunogenicity of vaccines.
Further I am involved in the investigation of a universal platform for the antigenic characterization of pathogens and the sign and surge production of vaccines and neutralizing reagents against emerging pathogens, in particular viruses.
Also I am involved in other ongoing projects, and try to be of assistance in the lab.
Research interests: Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, and Microbiology
Already with my internship at the department of Medical Microbiology-Molecular Virology at the University Medical Centre of Groningen 16 years ago I knew that especially medical biology with its treatment of infectious diseases and vaccine development was really fascinating! Next to finding a cure to diseases I am also interested in the fundamental research in biology that comes with it.
