Dr. Rico Derks

Senior researcher


Rico Derks studied at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) and received his M.Sc. in analytical chemistry. His Ph.D. he obtained in 2006, also at the Vrije Universiteit, working on the coupling of biochemical assays to mass spectrometry for detection and identification of bioactive compounds. After a post-doctoral position at the Department of Parasitology (LUMC, Leiden, The Netherlands) he continued as a senior researcher at the Center for Proteomics and Metabolomics (LUMC) working in the field of untargeted and targeted Metabolomics and Lipidomics.
