General teaching

Members of the CPM are involved in the teaching of the Bachelor and Master Biomedical Sciences of the LUMC, but also frequently as guests during various courses organized by faculties of the Leiden University, and University of Applied Sciences Leiden. The CPM coordinates the Frontiers of Science (FoS) course “Proteomics in Biomedical Research” ( and co-coordinates the FoS course “Cardiometabolic disease”, as part of the Master Biomedical Sciences. The CPM also regularly organizes specific courses for PhD students.

PhD training

A significant part of our research is performed by PhD students. PhD projects are often performed in collaboration with other research groups in the LUMC or with external partners.

Student research projects

There are frequent opportunities for undergraduate students to do research projects at the CPM. Students with a strong general background in the natural sciences and pursuing an education or career in biomedical sciences, molecular biology, analytical chemistry or bioinformatics are particularly encouraged to contact us. Our standard period for an internship is at least a period of five months. For more information about the options, please send your CV and letter of motivation to dr. Paul Hensbergen ( Please indicate in which group of the CPM you are particularly interested.

Visiting scientists

The CPM regularly hosts guest researchers (e.g. PhD-students and post-docs) from other national and international research institutes. The goal of these visits is to learn a particular technique or analyze samples on our platforms. If you are interested to collaborate with us, please contact the respective group leader or department head and clearly indicate in your email what your goal and expectations are.
