Marjolein Caron studied Clinical Molecular Science at the transnational University of Limburg. She did her PhD on regulation of chondrogenesis at the Dept. of Orthopedic Surgery at the Maastricht University. Currently, Marjolein is working as an assistant professor in the same department. Her work focuses on fundamental/ translational research on the cartilaginous phase of endochondral ossification. Understanding these mechanisms of cell commitment and further differentiation into chondrocytes is of great importance to optimize (progenitor) cell-based cartilage regeneration as well as understanding pathologies such as osteoarthritis.
