DORIAN HAS GRADUATED!
On 28th of September Dorian Luijkx has received his Master of Science diploma. Magdalena has written the laudatory speech for this occasion, which was read by Dorian's study coordinator. Congratulations Dorian! Good luck with your PhD endeavour in Maastricht!
OUR NEW PAPER PUBLISHED
Our review discussing the challenges and opportunities in use of MSC-EVs as a therapeutic in tissue repair is out! Congratulations to Suzy, who put in a lot of work to make it happen!
Bahar joined the lab to work on the role of MSC and their secretome in the repair of intestinal tissue.
Magdalena received a grant from KIKA Foundation to study the role of MSC and their secretome in the repair of intestinal tissue.
VISIT IN ANCONA
Magdalena visited the Polytechnic University of Marche in Ancona, Italy, to give a seminar on our recent finding regarding the role of MSC and their secretome in tissue repair.
Suzy joined the lab to work on the molecular mechanism underlying the anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties of MSC-derived extracellular vesicles in cartilage repair.
LOTTE HAS GRADUATED!
On 11th of February Lotte van den Bent has received her Master of Science diploma. Magdalena was happy to give a laudatory speech for this occasion. Congratulation Lotte! Good luck with your PhD!
VISIT PROF. EDIT BUZAS
Professor Edit Buzas from Semmelweis University, Budapest has visited the lab. She gave an overview of her work on the extracellular vesicles within the regenerative medicine seminar series. Prof. Buzas also gave an interactive masterclass on recent developments in EV field.
VISIT IN BELGRADE
Magdalena has visited Belgrade to present our recent data on role of MSC-EV in cartilage regeneration on the Fifth Symposium of regenerative medicine “Stem cells – a vision beyond borders”, Belgrade, Serbia.
Magdalena was awarded grant from Dutch Arthritis Foundation to study the molecular mechanism of how MSC-EVs regulate cartilage regeneration.
VISIT DR. MICHIEL PEGTEL
Dr. Michiel Pegtel visits the lab to give an overview of the recent developments of his research on extracellular vesicles. It has been a very well received seminar and fruitful discussion. We look forward to future collaboration.
RALUCA TUTUIANU VISITED THE LAB
Raluca Tutuianu from the Laboratory of Mesenchymal Stromal Progenitor Cells Therapy at "Nicolae Simionescu" Institute of Cellular Biology and Pathology in Bucharest visited the lab to learn everything about MSC-derived EVs. We look forward to future collaboration.
Magdalena was awarded K.F. Hein Fonds grant for the work aiming to understand the communication between MSC and injured intestinal epithelium.
OUR NEW PAPER PUBLISHED
Our paper on the role of MSC-EVs in cartilage regeneration is published in Theranostics.
Magdalena in collaboration with Dr. Lucienne Vonk from Department of Orthopaedics was awarded Translationeel Adult Stamcelonderzoek (TAS) Game changer grant from ZonMW for continuation of the work on the role of MSC-EVs in cartilage regeneration.
