Marjon van Ruiten

PhD Student


In 2016 I started my PhD in the group of Benjamin Rowland. I study how cohesin forms chromatin loops and mediates sister chromatid cohesion using a mammalian cell system. More specifically, I am interested to understand the role of cohesin acetylation in regulating cohesin-mediated processes. To support my research project, I received a PhD fellowship from the Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds.
I earned my Master's degree in Biomedical Sciences at Utrecht University, where I was enrolled in the program "Cancer, Stem Cells and Developmental Biology". I performed my first internship in the lab of Benjamin Rowland. My second internship took place in the lab of David Langenau at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston.
