In 2013, I started my bachelor Pharmaceutical Sciences at Leiden University with a minor in pharmacy. During my internship at the Department of Medicinal Chemistry in 2015, I worked on finding new intracellular allosteric antagonists for CC chemokine receptor 5. I expanded on my bachelor project during my 9 months internship for my Master’s in Biopharmaceutical Sciences. In addition, I explored the possibilities of the compound’s probe dependent characteristics. My second internship I performed at the Department of Clinical Chemistry and Hematology, where I was involved in the development of an experimental model for extracellular vesicle transfer in cancer cells. After obtaining my Master’s degree, I decided to further explore my interests in chemical pharmacology and joined the lab of Prof. Dr. Ad IJzerman in the Dr. Laura Heitman group. During my PhD, I will again focus on CC chemokine receptors and explore concepts in drug discovery such as allosteric modulation, precision medicine and functional selectivity in combination with drug binding kinetics.
