Erik van Leen MSc, alumnus MCLS
Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences (MCLS)
Computational Life Scientist in Tissue Repair
"My name is Eric van Leen, I currently work at Bayer (Pharmaceuticals) in Germany as a Computational Life Scientist in Tissue Repair. This involves designing in vitro and in silico experiments within the domain of liver cirrhosis, as well as coordinating internal and external collaborations with other Data Scientists. I obtained my Bachelor’s in Biology and Master’s degrees in Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences at Utrecht University. During this period, I worked in labs at Utrecht University, MIT, and Cambridge University, which ultimately led to a PhD position at Institut Curie in Paris. I will happily share more career details with you in the upcoming online career event including the choices I faced along the way."
