Noortje Bax is currently a project officer for the Center of Care & Cure Technology Eindhoven (C3Te) at the department of Electrical Engineering (EE). With her study in Biology and her experience in the biomedical research field, she aims to mediate collaborations between groups of the department EE, clinics and industry in the field of Care & Cure Technology. Furthermore, she supports researchers in exploring funding opportunities and in writing grant propoposals. As a researcher, Noortje was active in the field of cardiac regenerative medicine. Central to this research was the cell biology approach, taking into account the role of cells in the cardiac reparative process and the interaction between cells and their surrounding matrix. She was involved in the educational programme and Noortje successfully supervised 3 PHD -students and more than 10 final projects of Bachelor and Master students. Finally, during her career as a research at the Eindhoven University of Technology (2010-2019) she always conducted her research in close collaboration with the medical centers in Leiden, Rotterdam, Utrecht and Eindhoven.
