Mark Verheijden was born in Oosterhout, The Netherlands, on February the 2nd 1989. He studied Chemical Engineering at the University of Twente. His bachelor assignment was performed at the University of Aberdeen with the topic “ESR investigation of TiO2 nanoparticles for photocatalytic applications”. His internship was performed at IBM (San Jose, USA) on “block copolymer coated paramagnetic nanoparticles for drug delivery”. He received his master degree (cum laude) at the University of Twente in October 2013. The topic of the master project was “Designing reversible cell interactions using supramolecular host-guest chemistry via strain promoted click chemistry on cell surfaces functionalized by metabolic labeling”
As of February 2014, he is a Ph.D. candidate under supervision of Pascal Jonkheijm, studying cell-surface interfaces. The aim of the research is to design surfaces that can selectively and dynamically interact with cells in order both study and gain control over these cell-surface interactions.
