Saving the joint: Biological Strategies to Preserve Cartilage

What was your PhD about?  

My PhD was focused on extracellular vesicle (EV) therapeutics for cardiac repair. My research addressed various aspects to improve the application of EVs as biological therapeutics and drug delivery vehicles, and highlighted the broad applicability and complexity of EVs as therapeutic agents.

What is your fondest memory of your time at RMU? 

I really enjoyed being part of the RM PhD community. Especially the retreats and borrels contributed to the bonding with fellow PhD students and made the PhD life more fun. 

What are you going to do next? 

I am exploring Scientist/Postdoc opportunities outside the Netherlands. Will be continued..
