Dr. Mark Vondenhoff
Mark Vondenhoff studied biology at Radboud University Nijmegen and has subsequently conducted fundamental biomedical research for many years. In particular in the field of the development of the immune system. Mark has a PhD in secondary lymphoid organ development and has worked as a postdoctoral researcher on immune cell development in human skin. He has been working at The Hague University of Applied Sciences since 2011, where he is senior lecturer in the Skin Therapy course.
Through his work in the Data Science and the Oncological care research groups, Mark Vondenhoff conducts research in the field of suspicious skin lesions. The research he is interested in is mainly in the field of risk signaling of underlying pathologies upon recognition of clinical predictors in patients with a skin problem.
In addition to research into the risk signaling of skin cancer, Mark Vondenhoff is also interested in other research in the field of (paramedical) skin care and skin cancer. To this end, he regularly assigns assignments for student teams. Both for student projects in the field of research with the aim of increasing knowledge and development projects in which students create practical solutions. He does this within graduation education of the Skin Therapy course. But also within the minor Skin Care Research in Practice and the minor Skin Care Innovation Project.
