Florieke Eggermont scientific lecturerFlorieke Eggermont is working as a scientific researcher at the Orthopaedic Research Lab on patient-specific finite element computer models that help predicting fracture risk in patients with advanced cancer and femoral bone metastases. Besides, she is working as scientific lecturer for several courses of the studies Biomedical Sciences and Medicine at the Radboud University Nijmegen.
