Sven van IJzendoorn received his Master degree at the University of Maastricht in 1995 and his PhD degree (cum laude) at the University of Groningen (laboratory of Dick Hoekstra) in 1999. With a long-term fellowship of the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) he performed his postdoctoral studies at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) in the laboratory of Keith Mostov.
He then returned to the Netherlands to start his research group in the department of Cell Biology at the University Medical Center Groningen, where he is currently appointed as full professor. His research focusses on the molecular mechanisms that control the intracellular dynamics of proteins, lipids and membranes in the context of the functional organization of cells, and to understand how these mechanisms contribute to health or, when disrupted, to human diseases. In this context, his research also focusses on elucidating the pathogenesis of rare congenital disorders, develop patient-specific iPSC-based cell models and identify leads for novel therapeutic strategies.
Sven van IJzendoorn is member of the board of the Netherlands Association for the Study of the Liver (NASL), member of the advisory board of the Dutch Society for Cell Biology, member of the editorial board of ‘Tissue Barriers’, curator of the international registry of patients with microvillus inclusion disease, and program leader of the UMCG Center for Liver, Digestive & Metabolic Diseases.
