prof. dr. R. (Roos) Masereeuw
Roos Masereeuw received her MSc. in Biopharmaceutical Sciences from Leiden University in 1991, and a Ph.D. from the Radboud University in 1997. In 1997, she joined the Radboudumc as Assistant Professor and in 2002 as Associate Professor after obtaining a prestigious Aspasia award from The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).
In 1995 she worked in the lab of Dr. D.S. Miller (Lab. Pharmacology and Chemistry, NIEHS/NIH, North Carolina, USA), and visited Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory (Maine, USA) as principal investigator in 1997, 1998, 2010 and 2014.
Research interest is focused on understanding the pathways that can be pharmacologically triggered to enhance repair and regeneration processes after organ injury, aiming at elucidating novel bio-inpired therapeutic strategies. Her research can be roughly divided in two lines: 1. disease modeling, and 2. regenerative (nephro)pharmacology. She is author of over 120 publications, book chapters and review articles, and has presented numerous lectures and workshops.
In 2009 she received the Dutch Pharmacological Society (NVF) Schering-Plough Pharmacology Award and in 2010 the Galenus Research prize as recognitions of her contributions to pharmacological research. In 2015 she was elected fellow of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
