Dr M.G.A. van Holstein (Mieke)
Employee - Knowledge Transfer
At Research & Impact, I am using my project management skills to contribute to the acceleration and improvement of science and technological innovation.
After obtaining a PhD in neuroscience in 2016, and a 4-year post-doc at UBC in Canada (Vancouver), I returned to the Netherlands to work for a company as consultant & project leader.
The interfaculty, multidisciplinary initiative I am currently leading aims to innovate the development of focused ultrasound as a promising key-technology. We focus on its current application as research tool for neuromodulation and on its future potential for clinical use and to target drug delivery (through opening the blood brain barrier).
- 2022 - 2024 The Focused Ultrasound Stimulation (FUS) initiative invests in centralized support in terms of FUS knowledge and technology. The initiative aims to support scientific research and advance technological development of FUS technology and clinical applications. The initiative contributes to a future where minimally invasive therapy can be part of everyday life. More information
