Associate Professor

Marcel van Genderen


Marcel van Genderen is associate professor of Bio-organic Chemistry with the research group Biomedical Chemistry of the department of Biomedical Engineering. His research is in the field of bio-organic chemistry and the use of NMR spectroscopy for the analysis of complex molecular structures.


Marcel van Genderen studied chemistry at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e, The Netherlands) where he graduated cum laude in 1984. He then joined the Laboratory of Organic Chemistry of TU/e to perform PhD research on the conformational behavior of DNA analogues. In 1989, he received his PhD and continued his work at the group as an assistant professor. In 1995 he was on sabbatical leave in the group of professor Hans Wolfgang Spiess at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (Mainz, Germany) where he worked on solid-state deuterium NMR of supramolecular complexes. In 2002 he was appointed as associate professor in the TU/e Laboratory of Macromolecular and Organic Chemistry. From 2006 to 2018, he was part-time Director of Education for the TU/e department of Biomedical Engineering.
