Niels Harlaar, BSc

Niels Harlaar joined our lab in Spring 2015 as part of Leiden University’s MD-PhD program and is co-supervised by Dr. van Brakel (Department of Cardiothoracic surgery).

During his PhD training he will develop and utilize human cardiac tissue models to investigate novel pathways involved in atrial fibrillation-associated structural and functional remodeling.

Currently, he holds the record of being (by far) the youngest lab member.
