Personal information

Marijke de Cock is working as an assistant professor at the department of Environment and Health. She is a health scientist with several years of experience in epidemiological studies on environmental chemicals and health. During her PhD, which was part of the European research project OBELIX, she designed and implemented a mother-child cohort in the Netherlands to study early life exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and child health. Within this cohort she focused on pre- and postnatal exposure to endocrine disruptors and child growth. During her postdoc on the European research project DENAMIC, she extended the cohort to two other locations in the Netherlands and extended follow-up of the children with assessments of behavioral development. The cohort now includes over 300 mother-child pairs, with the oldest children being 5 years of age, and having data available from over 90 different chemicals.

Marijke coordinates the internships for students of the Bachelor Health and Life Sciences with a major in Health Sciences. She teaches in several courses and regularly supervises thesis students.
