After receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology, Ellen Schmitz (1988) continued with the Master program Medical Engineering. She decided to do this in the field of clinical chemistry. The research for her Master thesis was done in cooperation between the Chemical Biology group of prof. Luc Brunsveld and the clinical lab of the Catharina Hospital. She worked on quantification of novel direct oral anticoagulants in blood plasma, using liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry and coagulation assays. After receiving her Master’s degree in 2013, she decided to stay for a PhD. Her project is a cooperation between the Chemical Biology group and the clinical labs of the Catharina Hospital in Eindhoven and the Maxima Medical Centre in Veldhoven. Goal of this research is to use state-of-the-art technology for innovations in the field of clinical chemistry. For example, using size-exclusion chromatography, fluorescent labeling and high-resolution mass spectrometry for quantification of large proteins.
