Profile

Leontien van der Bent is a molecular biologist with a special interest in heritable disorders. She finished both her BSc Biology and MSc Biology (specialization Molecular Development and Gene Regulation) at Wageningen University.

This PhD project, which is funded by the Prinses Beatrix Spierfonds, revolves around myotonic dystrophy: a multisystemic disorder that is characterized by among others muscle stiffness and muscle weakness. Using an antisense oligonucleotide approach, we aim to develop a therapy for this disorder. It is a joint project between the departments of Cell Biology and Biochemistry.
