Tom Mastenbroek is the Project Manager and Impact Officer for RegMedXB. He studied biology at the University of Wageningen and during his master’s education he specialized in cellular differentiation and immunology. In 2016, he obtained his Ph.D. in the field of vascular biology, vessel wall remodelling and thrombosis & haemostasis at Maastricht University under the guidance of Dr. Judith Cosemans and Prof. Johan Heemskerk. In his thesis, he showed for the first time the potential of blood platelets to degrade extracellular matrix and the involvement of platelets in pathological remodelling of the vessel wall after an atherothrombotic event. This concept was further exploited during his PostDoc where he identified novel ways of inhibiting platelet dependent growth factor secretion aiming to block pathological vascular remodelling.

My name is Lindsy Op ’t Eijnde, and I am originally a speech therapist. After my graduation in 2006 I worked in a medical center where I treated voice, speech-and language disorders and swallowing disorders in children, adults and the elderly. The patient target group I worked with was very diverse. During my internship periods I also gained experience in special primary education and a medical daycare center. Here I got to know all kinds of support communication tools and materials. This gave me the opportunity to gain experience with treating speech and language disorders in children with ADHD and autism. Due to a lack of work in speech therapy in the period after my graduation, I worked for 10 years at pension fund APG. Here I was involved in allocating and managing pensions and communicating with clients. I also followed a traineeship which allowed me to do other work. For example, carrying out management reports and being involved in the development of customer satisfaction surveys being responsible for improving customer satisfaction. In addition to my job at APG, I was also a volunteer at COA, where I supported young children in learning the Dutch language. Working on communication and improving communication has always been central to my career. I gain a lot of energy from this and that is why I am very enthusiastic that I started at RegMed XB as a management assistant. I will be involved in communication in the broadest sense of the word.
