Marianne Van Der Vaart

BSc, MSc

Postdoc Research Assistant


Marianne joined the Paediatric Neuroimaging Group in October 2018, first as a DPhil student and now as a postdoctoral research associate. She is interested in improving the way we assess pain in newborns and in understanding how clinical procedures impact infants' brain activity, behaviour and physiology. During her DPhil, she characterised premature infants' brain activity to a clinical procedure. Currently, she is working with respiratory data to understand the impact of clinical procedures on infants' breathing patterns. She hopes to contribute to better ways of deciding whether analgesics are effective in babies. 

Marianne previously completed her training as a medical doctor (BSc and MSc in Medicine) and her MSc in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Leiden, the Netherlands.
