Marinka studied Biology & Medical Laboratory Research with a specialization in Forensic Biology at Avans Breda and received her Bachelor’s degree in 2020. She did one internship at the Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, USA, testing the ForenSeq kit on buccal swabs from decomposed bodies. She also did my second internship at the Pathology department of the LUMC investigating Mismatch Repair deficiency in prostate cancer. During her internships Marinka learned several molecular laboratory research skills, which she can use in her work as Technician at GenDx. Marinka is very excited and motivated to contribute to the GenDx production and research for improving the success rate of transplantations.
