About me

My name is Nikki in 't Groen. I have been an internship student within the CGM team since the beginning of September. Currently I am in my last year of college. When I am done with college this year, I will have my bachelor's degree in Forensic Laboratory research. During the final year of my studies, I am doing an internship at Maastricht UMC+ in the Clinical Genetics department within the CGM team. My project during my internship in the CGM team is about clinical epigenomics. I will develop and validate a diagnostic assay for patients with aberrant epigenetic alterations. Methylation of DNA appears to play an essential role in the development of certain diseases by inhibiting the expression of certain genes.
