Yvonne Tiersma

Research technician/Organoid facility manager

I am the manager of the Organoid Facility. The organoid facility supports organoid-based projects by facilitating quality-tested conditioned media and matrices. Every research group can contact this facility with their needs regarding their organoid projects. Next to working at the organoid facility I am also working on several research projects. One of the projects is about finding a blastema marker in Wilms tumors. With this blastema marker we could, for instance, grow different cell types of the Wilms tumor separately and investigate the Wilms tumors better. In my free time I like to play water polo and meet with friends.
