Meet the team! – Corné
Behind the scenes many volunteers, scientists, doctors and other stakeholders are working towards our goal: beat PLN. But who are these people? Meet the team!
Corné van Dam, intern PLN Foundation: “We want to understand the development of the disease”
Hi! My name is Corné. In addition to my Biomedical Sciences study, I’ve committed myself to the PLN Foundation one day a week. I am working on what we know about PLN and together with Ellis and Luuk I formulate questions for researchers. This is important, we want to understand the development of the disease, so we can develop a targeted treatment. At the moment we don’t understand some things yet, but by stimulating research we want to understand the most important parts of PLN. In addition to this internship, I am also doing research into PLN for my bachelor thesis. I’m researching PLN that accumulates in the heart of PLN patients. In this way I contribute to understanding and hopefully treating PLN!
