Lisanne Morshuis started in 2013 with the study Biomedical Engineering at the University of Twente. In 2017 she continued with the master progamme specialising in Bionanotechnology and Advanced Biomanufacturing at the University of Twente. Her internship at Leiden University Medical Center under supervision of dr. C.F.M. Sier focused on the development of a fluorescently labeled peptide for image-guided surgery on pancreatic tumor stroma. She performed her master thesis at the Biomaterials Science and Technology group at the University of Twente under supervision of dr. J. Prakash where she worked on the development of peptide-labeled, drug-loaded nanoparticles for the treatment of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. In April 2020 she obtained her master's degree and in August 2020 she started as PhD student at the Developmental BioEngineering group under supervision of prof. dr. H.B.J. Karperien. Her current research focuses on the use of VHHs as potential imaging agents and therapautics in osteoarthritis.
