Biography

Jeanine Prompers is associate professor of Biomedical Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) in the department of Biomedical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (the Netherlands). She studied Chemistry at the Radboud University Nijmegen (the Netherlands), where she graduated cum laude in 1994. The following years she performed a PhD project in the group of Prof. Dr. C.W. Hilbers at the Radboud University Nijmegen in the field of high-resolution protein MRS. In 1999, she obtained her PhD degree with a dissertation entitled ‘’NMR studies of Fusarium solani pisi cutinase - Structure-mobility-function relationships’’. After her PhD, she was awarded a long-term postdoctoral fellowship from the Human Frontier of Science Program for two years of research with Prof. Brüschweiler (Clark University, USA). During this period, she studied correlated protein motions by a combined interpretation of MR relaxation data and molecular dynamics simulations. After her postdoc, she joined the Biomedical NMR group of Prof. Nicolay at Eindhoven University of Technology in 2002 as an assistant professor. Her research interest is to characterize metabolic disturbances underlying the etiology of metabolic disorders, such as insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, using a multi-tissue approach. To this end she develops in vivo MRS methods to study metabolic processes in skeletal muscle, heart and liver, such as mitochondrial bioenergetics and intracellular lipid handling. In 2008, she was awarded a NWO VIDI grant entitled ‘’In vivo magnetic resonance spectroscopy of lipid dynamics in insulin-resistant muscle’’. In 2012, she was promoted to associate professor.
