Wouter Verdurmen assistant professor

Dr. Verdurmen’s research interests deal with designing nature-inspired drug carriers that overcome delivery barriers, employing synthetic binding proteins that can target tissue- or cell-specific receptors or intracellular targets. For this, he utilizes novel tumor-on-a-chip approaches that can mimic physiological barriers that drugs encounter in vivo. Dr. Verdurmen received his master’s degree in Biomedical Sciences cum laude in 2008 from the Radboud University, and in 2012 he received his PhD degree cum laude from the same university.

Field of study

Biochemistry

Research group Engineered proteins for drug delivery

Wouter Verdurmen’s research group focuses on designing and investigating engineered proteins that overcome delivery barriers, employing synthetic binding proteins for target recognition. Various (super-resolution) microscopy techniques as well as microfluidic tumor-on-a-chip approaches are used.
