Dr. Marjon ten Hoor (Netherlands) – Genetic research
Dr. Marjon ten Hoor (Netherlands)
I am a teacher at the University of Utrecht (Netherlands) at the Department of Pharmacy and is involved in courses which are molecularly oriented (such as cell biology, immunology, microbiology and biotechnology). In addition, I support students in their development of oral communication skills. My focus is genetics and biotechnology and I help the CMTC organization.
Before this, I participated in various molecular biological research projects for companies such as TNO and Wageningen University. During my PhD in the Department of Genetics at the University of Wageningen I generated promising enzymes of fungi such as Aspergillus and mutagenetic by the application of recombinant DNA techniques.
Within the pharmaceutical industry, I worked as a project supervisor quality control within a facility for the production of monoclonal antibodies. Highlighting the customer perspective in healthcare has become my focus during my research interviews at different institutes. In addition to teaching students and lifelong learning, it is the perspective of the patient in health care which is my driving force.
