Dr. Laurens Bosman (L.W.J.)

Biography

Laurens Bosman studied biology / biophysics at Leiden University and obtained his PhD in membrane physiology at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. As post-doctoral fellow, he worked together with Arthur Konnerth at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Techische Universität München in Germany. Currently, he works as assistant professor at the Department of Neuroscience of the Erasmus MC, chaired by Chris De Zeeuw. In his research, he focuses on how the cerebellum cooperates with other brain regions to adjust behavior in response to sensory feedback in health and disease.
