Verena Schwach's Biography



Verena Schwach, Assistant Professor, Applied Stem Cell Technologies, University of Twente

Verena performed her PhD program in Molecular cardiovascular developmental biology in the group of Prof. Robert Passier at the department of Anatomy and Embryology at the Leiden University Medical Center headed by Prof. Christine Mummery. Verena was working on the generation of different subtypes of cardiac cells and their use for drug screening and cardiac repair and has published several studies which are depicted in this thesis. Since 2017, Verena is working as at the Applied Stem Cell Technologies department of the University in Twente which is headed by Prof. Robert Passier. Here she is working on the generation of advanced 3D tissue models for safety pharmacology and understanding disease mechanisms utilizing human stem cell-derived cardiac cells.

Cardiovascular diseases are one of the major causes of mortality and morbidity worldwide. However, current disease models are often not predictive enough because of species differences or lacking complexity. It is of major importance to create models able to predict the effect and toxicity of novel drugs and understand underlying disease models. We differentiate human pluripotent stem cells towards a variety of cells, which provides us with an unlimited source of human cells for 3D tissue engineering and disease modeling. Together with state-of-the-art CRISPR/Cas genome editing, we also generate in vitro models inherited disease.
