Cecile Maassen

Technical staff

I studied Biochemistry at the Hogere Laboratoriumschool in Sittard, graduated in 1990, and got a job at the lab of Prof. Chris Reutelingsperger in this same year, and more than 25 years later, I’m still there. Couldn’t have a better job.

Current work: Everything with Annexin V and Vitamin K related proteins (since Prof. Leon Schurgers joined our group). I love the old fashioned real Biochemistry work: Purifying proteins, labelling, ELISA’s, FACS.
