Sander W van der Laan
I studied at the University of Utrecht (the Netherlands) and earned my Bachelor's degree in Biology. Following that I earned my Master's degree in Biology of Disease at the University Medical Center Utrecht of the University of Utrecht. In the mean time I also worked at a biotechnology start-up Cavadis (Utrecht, the Netherlands) which was focused on cardiovascular biomarker diagnostics development based on large-scale 'omics'-data.
This gave further inspiration to pursuit a PhD in cardiovascular genomics which you can find here https://www.narcis.nl/publication/RecordID/oai:dspace.library.uu.nl:1874%2F346682 and here https://reader.ogc.nl/aa46269e-5db9-4a7b-b70a-a74a97aa3c41.epub/.
