Eline Geervliet started her Bachelor Technical Medicine in September 2014 at the University of Twente. She finished het Bachelor in 2017 with her thesis named: “The use of a shape memory material in the treatment of heart failure with a reduced ejection fraction” During her bachelor she discovered her interest in biomaterials and therefore decided to start the master Biomedical Engineering, Bionanotechnology and advanced biomanufacturing track, in September 2017, also at the University of Twente. Her internship she performed in Dresden at Leibniz-Institute for Polymer Research titled: “Decoration of extra cellular matrix degrading enzymes on a pH-responsive polymersome as treatment of liver cirrhosis”. Here she successfully decorated the collagen-I degrading enzyme matrix metalloproteinase 1 (MMP-1), for direct availability. Therefore, it was possible to continue this project for here thesis, where she tested the decorated smart polymersome in vitro and in and ex vivo. She finished her master thesis titled “pH-responsive polymersomes for matrix metalloproteinase-1 delivery as a promising therapeutic strategy for the treatment of liver fibrosis” in December 2019. Since February 2020 she is working at the University of Twente as research assistant on polymeric drug delivery in liver pathology.
