Articular cartilage is a highly resilient tissue that covers the surfaces at the ends of long bones. Because of its lubricating properties, it ensures the pain-free and supple movements of our joints. Cartilage has a very low self-repairing ability and damage to cartilage induces a gradual process towards osteoarthritis. In this project, we will use a computational model of the chondrocyte to predict the signals determining the switch from articular to osteoarthritic cartilage. The model-predictions will be validated using a combination of traditional molecular biology techniques and advanced biophysical methods, including FRAP, to map gene regulatory mechanisms in a spatial and temporal manner.

The University of Twente. We stand for life sciences and technology. High tech and human touch. Education and research that matter. New technology which leads change, innovation and progress in society. The University of Twente is the only campus university of the Netherlands; divided over five faculties we provide more than fifty educational programmes. We have a strong focus on personal development and talented researchers are given scope for carrying out groundbreaking research.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status or disability status. Because of our diversity values we do particularly support women to apply.
Within the TNW Faculty (Faculty of Science & Technology) of the University of Twente some 700 staff members and 2000 students are involved in training and research on the interface of chemical technology, applied physics and biomedical technology. Fields of application include sustainable energy, process technology and materials science, nanotechnology and technical medicine. Research, which enjoys a high profile both at home and internationally, has been accommodated in the multidisciplinary research institutes MESA+ and MIRA. The faculty works together intensively with industrial partners and researchers in the Netherlands and abroad and conducts extensive research for external commissioning parties and funders.
