Suzan de Boer

Suzan de Boer joined the group of Jeroen Eikenboom after receiving her doctorate in 2017 at Monash University Melbourne, Australia. Having experience in both immunology and (epi)genetics groups, she started her PhD, focusing on modelling epigenetic dysregulation in developmental disorders. Here she gained experience in the generation and differentiation of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). At the Einthoven Laboratory, Suzan initially focused on the structural and functional qualities of endothelial colony forming cells (ECFCs) of von Willebrand Disease (VWD) patients and controls. After receiving the LSBR grant, the project moved into the generation of iPSCs from patients with VWD. With the differentiation of these patient-specific iPSCs into endothelial cells, we are generating a cell model to study VWD, but also other bleeding and vascular disorders.
