The Power List 2021


Distinguished Professor of Molecular Imaging, Maastricht University; Director of M4i, The Maastricht MultiModal Molecular Imaging institute, The Netherlands

Biggest breakthrough? The ability to do high throughput imaging MS at single-cell resolution. This is crucial for the clinical translation of molecular pathology.

Biggest challenge? The data challenge! Our analytical instruments provide exponentially increasing data sets that contain more and more analytical detail. But the tools to take full advantage of the information enclosed in the dataset are still lagging behind. 

In another life… I would probably be a travel writer – exploring the world and writing about my experience. Or I would coach students to take full advantage of their potential in science.

Heroes? Without a doubt: Richard Feynman: That’s how enjoyable science should be!
