Carolien van Alphen obtained an MSc in Biomedical Sciences at the VU University in Amsterdam. During her internship at the Oncoproteomics Laboratory she worked on the project “Proteomics of an HPV progression model”. Currently she is a PhD student working on a phosphoproteomics project in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).
