My name is Inge and I am from the Netherlands. My interest for research started during my secondary vocational education when I did a project on Barret’s esophagus for my clinical chemistry study, at ROC Aventus in the Netherlands. My bachelor in Medical diagnostics is from the Hanze University of applied science in Groningen. For my final project of this education I went to Umeå university where I worked in the group of Yuri Schwartz, and gained a deeper understanding about Polycomb Repressive Complexes. My master, biomedicine, I did at Umeå university.
For my master project I worked in the group of Sun Nyunt Wai, on the expression of epigenetic regulators of human host cells after treatment with bacterial outer membrane vesicles.
My research interest has been the effect of genetic on the phenotypical appearance of the cells, and see if the appearance of these same cells can change if you change their genetics.
