My name is Marloes Levers. I’m a biomedical research technician and obtained my bachelor’s degree at Saxion Hogeschool Deventer in 2007. I started as a research technician in the group of Frank van Leeuwen at the laboratory of pediatric oncology at Radboud UMC in Nijmegen. After that I’ve worked at the Tissue Regeneration department at the UT and later for the spin-off company Materiomics.

Research interests   

Currently I work on the project: “Effects of ischemia and hypoxemia on neuronal connectivity and synaptic neurotransmission.”
