During his bachelor Medicine at the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam, Daniël started working as a research assistant at the MRCLEAN Registry Biobank under supervision of dr. Heleen van Beusekom. It is here that his interest in neurology and with the MRCLEAN-group started. After obtaining his MD degree, Daniël has worked a year as a neurology resident and then started with his PhD (2022) within vascular neurology.
