Jeroen Rouwkema, Associate Professor

Jeroen Rouwkema, PhD, got his PhD in Regenerative Medicine from the University of Twente, the Netherlands, in 2007. He received his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Clemens van Blitterswijk and gained further experience at MIT (Prof. Bob Langer), Keele University (Prof. Alicia El Haj) and Harvard Medical School (Prof. Ali Khademhosseini). He is currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Biomechanical Engineering, University of Twente, where he leads his own group focusing on vascularization of engineered tissues. He is a tissue engineer with an extensive experience in this field, having focused on the vascularization of skeletal muscle, bone, and cardiac muscle tissue. To optimize the organization and maturation of vascular networks, he combines tissue engineering technology with mechanical and chemical stimulation, computational modeling and biofabrication. He has received several personal scholarships, including a VENI scholarship (2011-2014), a Marie Sklodowska-Curie International Outgoing Fellowship (2014-2017) and an ERC Consolidator Grant (2017-2022).
