MDR Colloquium March

During the MDR Colloquium MDR researchers will share their latest findings and outcomes to the rest of the consortium and ISAB members. Every month one junior and one senior researcher will take the floor to show their work and get feedback.

You can join the meeting via the Outlook invitation you received.

In March the MDR Colloquium will take place on the 16th at 16:00h (CET).

During this colloquium we will host 2 MDR researchers:

  • Marloes van Mourik – Eindhoven University of Technology – “Cell Population Characterization of Enzymatically Isolated Articular Chondrons and Chondrocytes” 

Marloes completed her BSc in Biomedical Engineering at University of Twente and her MSc in Medical Engineering at TU/e. For her master’s thesis she worked on the analysis of subchondral bone of osteoarthritic knees using high-resolution CT data. Afterwards, she continued as a PhD candidate in the OPB group, switching from investigating bone to cartilage.

  • Prof. Roos Masereeuw – Utrecht University  – “From Experimental Pharmacology to Future Regenerative Therapies”

Roos Masereeuw obtained her M.Sc. in Biopharmaceutical Sciences from Leiden University in 1991, and a Ph.D. from Radboud University in 1997. In 1997, she joined the Radboudumc as Assistant Professor and in 2002 as Associate Professor after obtaining an Aspasia award from The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). In 1995, Masereeuw worked in the lab of Dr. D.S. Miller (Lab. Pharmacology and Chemistry, NIEHS/NIH, North Carolina, USA), and visited Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory (Maine, USA) as principal investigator in 1997, 1998, 2010 and 2014. In 2015, she moved to Utrecht University to become full professor of Experimental Pharmacology at the Science Faculty. Since 2018, Roos Masereeuw is the Scientific Director of the Utrecht Institute for Pharmaceutical Sciences (UIPS). Masereeuw is author of over 230 publications, book chapters and review articles, and has successfully supervised 24 PhD students. Currently, she supervises 16 PhD students and 4 post-docs.

In 2009, she received the Dutch Pharmacological Society (NVF) Schering-Plough Award and in 2010 the Prix Galien as recognitions of her contributions to pharmacological research. In 2015 she was elected fellow of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
