Marieke Meteling studied Biomedical Engineering at the University of Twente, starting in 2014. After obtaining her bachelor’s degree in 2017, she continued with the master programme at the University of Twente, specialising in Bionanotechnology and Advanced Biomanufacturing. During her internship at the Molecular Cell Biology group at Sahlgrenska Academy, Sweden, she studied the chondrogenesis of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) under different culture conditions. Her master thesis focused on elucidating the mechanism behind microaggregate shrinkage. In December 2019 she graduated Cum Laude at the Developmental BioEngineering group of the University of Twente.
Since March 2020 she is a PhD student in the Developmental BioEngineering group under the supervision of dr. J.C.H. Leijten. Her project focuses on single cell encapsulation, using microfluidic devices, to mimic and analyse the cellular microenvironment.
