We have 2 new students: Sissi and Alexandra!

Sissi Zhang has joined the lab as a second year BSc Medical student as part of Leiden University’s MD-PhD program. During this program Sissi will be focusing on projects concerning the origin of particular types of cardiac arrhythmias in order to get a better understanding of their underlying mechanisms for therapeutic purposes.

Alexandra Kreft has joined the lab as an intern for her Master's in Biomedical Sciences at Leiden University. She studies both Biomedical Sciences and Medicine. This 6-month internship will focus on characterizing human (iPS-derived) ventricular cardiomyocyte tissues. A second part of the project aims to culture human atrial tissue for conditional immortalization.

Welcome and have fun!
