Jolanda Derks


In 2014 I started my PhD project after finishing a master in Neurosciences. During my bachelor and master I enjoyed working in the lab as well as spending time behind the computer analysing MRI images. In this PhD project I have the opportunity to combine both modalities, which is challenging, both also very exciting. In this project I focus on the network alterations in the brain in glioma (brain tumor) patients with fMRI, DTI and MEG. In the lab, I study how cellular and molecular features of the tumor relate to these network alterations by investigating tumor samples of patients that underwent tumor surgery.
