Robin de Kruijff

Robin de Kruijff currently works as Assistant Professor at Delft University of Technology, where her research focuses on the compartmentology of elements and radionuclides in medicine, specifically looking into the production, distribution kinetics and sample analysis. As such, she aims to (1) obtain a better understanding of human and animal metabolism, (2) evaluate the uptake, distribution, intercompartmental kinetics and excretion of metals, and (3) develop (radio)isotopes for disease diagnosis or treatment. Prior to starting her appointment at Delft University of Technology, she was a Postdoc at Argonne National Laboratory where she focused mainly on radionuclide production and separation. She holds a B.S. in Applied Physics from Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, and she obtained her Applied Physics M.S. with a specialization in Nuclear Science and Engineering, after which she started her PhD at the same university. During her PhD thesis, she investigated the use of polymeric nanocarriers to retain recoiling alpha-emitting daughters of 225Ac. She spent part of her time working at the university hospital Radboudumc, the Netherlands, on preclinical studies. She currently serves as Chair of the Dutch Young Generation, a network for young employees working in the nuclear field. For more up-to-date info, please check out my website: Robin de Kruijff
