Personal profile

Research profile

Daisy van der Schaft (1976) studied (Biological) Health Sciences at the University ofMaastricht, the Netherlands (MSc 1998). In 2002 she obtained her PhD degree at the University of Maastricht on ‘the development of angiogenesis inhibitors for cancer therapy’. Subsequently, she visited the laboratory of Prof.dr. M.J.C. Hendrix at the University of Iowa as a postdoc to study vasculogenic mimicry in tumors, which was continued at the University of Maastricht. In 2007 she joined the group of Prof.dr. K. Nicolay at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and shifted her research focus to molecular imaging using MRI. From 2008-2013 she worked as assistant professor at the research group Soft Tissue Biomechanics & Engineering with a research focus in the area of cardiac and muscle tissue engineering and the application of stem cells. During this period she was also active as board member (and chair) of the women in science network (WISE network). In 2013 she transfer to the education board of the department focusing on the management of the Graduate Education. At present, Daisy van der Schaft is program director of the graduate program Life Sciences & Engineering at the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology and combines this with the function of manager of the education and student affairs team of the department Biomedical Engineering.
