Janna Marie Bas-Hoogendam studied Medicine at the Erasmus Medical Center (2003-2007) and obtained her research master’s degree in Neuroscience and Cognition at Utrecht University in 2009 (cum laude). She’s passionate about the use of neuro-imaging techniques to investigate the biological basis of psychiatric disorders, and her ambition is to become a neuroscientist who can contribute to biologically-based treatments and preventive interventions for psychiatric disorders. The focus of her current PhD project is on profiling endophenotypes of Social Anxiety Disorder using structural and functional MRI. This project, supervised by Michiel Westenberg, Nic van der Wee, and Henk van Steenbergen, is embedded within the Leiden Family Study on Social Anxiety. In addition, she is involved in the Netherlands Study of Depression and Anxiety (NESDA).
