My research areas are psycho- and neurolinguistics, in particular syntactic, morphological, and phonological processes in language production and reading aloud. Furthermore, I am interested in articulatory-motor processes during speech production, language processing in neurologically impaired patients, and forensic phonetics.
Kees (short for Cornelis) is a molecular biologist especially focussed on cell-cell interactions in cancer. He studied biology at the Free University of Amsterdam (NL) and obtained his PhD in 1993 at the Leiden University Medical Centre (Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology) and TNO-Gaubius Institute in Leiden, NL. After a post-doc in the same department Kees moved to the Università Vita Saluta San Raffaele in Milan (IT), where he stayed for 5 years. In his Italian period he visited several institutes, including the Mario Negri Institute for Pharmacological Research (Milan, IT) and the Finsen Laboratory, a basic cancer research department in Copenhagen (DK). He returned to the Leiden University Medical Centre performing research projects in the departments of Pathology, Gastroenterology, and Trauma Surgery. From the summer of 2010 Kees joined the CTMM consortium MUSIS via ARA-BV (SME located in Gouda, NL) and became associated member of the Image-guided Oncologic Surgery group (Head, dr. Alexander Vahrmeijer) within the department of Surgery of the Leiden University Medical Centre. His main focus is the evaluation of tumour markers as target for image-guided surgery and the subsequent development of targeted probes against selected candidates.
Henk van Steenbergen is an Assistant Professor at the Cognitive Psychology Unit at Leiden University and founder of the Affect, Motivation, and Action (AMA) lab. Henk studied at Leiden University, where he obtained a BA degree in Philosophy of Psychology, and a BSc and MPhil degree in Cognitive Neuroscience (cum laude) in 2007. He obtained his PhD (cum laude / highest distinction) from the same university in 2012, on a thesis entitled “The drive to control: How affect and motivation regulate cognitive control”.
I am a systematic botanist, specialized in Southeast Asian ferns. I am also interested in fern morphology, and in occasionally I dabble in more theoretical aspects of systematics and biogeography.
After graduating in Biopharmaceutical Sciences at Leiden University Luuk Hawinkels pursued a PhD project at the Leiden University Medical Centre to study cell-cell interactions in the gastrointestinal tumour microenvironment, especially focussing on the activation of important growth factors like transforming growth factor (TGF)-β and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). After obtaining my PhD he joined the ten Dijke TGF-β research group to work on therapeutic targeting of TGF-β receptors in tumour angiogenesis. During this post-doc project, he was awarded the Alpe d’HuZes Bas-Mulder award enabling him to start a small research group to investigate the TGF-β co-receptor endoglin as a prognostic marker and therapeutic target in breast-, pancreatic- and colorectal cancer. Early 2015 his group has moved to the gastroenterology department to continue on the endoglin project and start in collaboration with Prof James Hardwick new projects in relation to tumour biology and the cross talk with the immune system in colorectal cancer.
