On September 1st, 2021, two new PhD students joined the team. We wish them both lots of success!
Minsi Cai studied medicine at Shanghai Medical College, Fudan University, China (Bachelor of Clinical Medicine) and Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences & Peking Union Medical College, China (Master of Science, Internal Cardiovascular Medicine: Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing). During his PhD he will develop novel patient-level models for early detection and improved management of atrial fibrillation and its associated adverse outcomes in a project co-funded by the CARIM School for Cardiovascular Diseases.
Stefan Meier studied Health Sciences (Bachelor of Science) and Systems Biology (Master of Science) at Maastricht University. During his PhD, Stefan will use mechanistic computational models to investigate the impact of ion-channel trafficking on cardiac arrhythmogenesis as part of an NWO/ZonMw Vidi project.
