Cas Boshoven

Masters Student / Intern


Cas' main interest lies in unravelling molecular mechanism and pathways in disease, and believes this helps us in unravelling the basis of disease and eventually in treatment options.

Currently, Cas is working on Plasmodium falciparum, the parasite causing malaria. Cas' research focusses on a protein complex (PTEX) which exports proteins from the parasite into the red blood cell.

Additionally, Cas is interested in education and communication. During his master studies, he had the chance to explore this further by assisting bachelor students during a practical course and by setting up a lecture for a primary school, including a small experiment.
