Biography

Marcel is associate professor in the department of Medical Physiology at the University Medical Center Utrecht, The Netherlands. He obtained his PhD in the field of cancer research at the Utrecht University in 1995. Thereafter he performed two post-docs on stem cell biology and connexins at the Netherlands Institute of Developmental Biology. He entered the field of cardiac arrhythmias in 2000.
Currently, his focus is on cardiac potassium ion channel pharmacology and ion channel trafficking. His research group combines functional electrophysiological methods with cellular and molecular biology, and biochemical methods. He authored more than 120 peer reviewed papers, most of which deal with membrane protein biology and pharmacology including ion channels. 

Marcel teaches and writes on scientific integrity and is member of several advisory panels on this subject. Marcel is associate editor on four peer review physiology journals and was secretary of the Dutch Society of Physiology for five years. In 2017/18 he worked as guest-professor at the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology at Vienna University. Marcel is a passionate teacher of physiology. He obtained his Senior Teaching Qualification in 2018 and is currently coordinator and examiner in the Medical curriculum in the course Circulation 1 and the bachelor Honours Program for medical students.
