Personal profile

Research interests

With over 15 years of experience in clinical neuroanatomy, morphometry and neurology, I am specialized in teaching and scientific research in the field of neurodegenerative disorders. Touched by the impressive motor and non-motor symptoms in Parkinson’s disease (PD) and the burden this brings on families, understanding clinical heterogeneity in early stage PD has been the primary focus of my research. Since 2016, I am head of the research group Clinical Neuroanatomy and Biobanking (CNAB) at dept. of Anatomy of Neurosciences, VU University Medical Center (VUmc). Within my research group, we focus on identifying novel biomarkers and therapeutic strategies for neurodegenerative disorders. I am founder and scientific director of the Normal Aging Brain Bank (www.nabca.eu), member of scientific board of Advanced Optical Microscopy Core (AO2M; www.ao2m.amsterdam), head of Advisory board Biobanking, VUmc.
