Lawrence obtained a Master in Biomedical Sciences at the KU Leuven, followed by a PhD at the VIB & KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research. His research focussed on unravelling molecular mechanisms underlying peripheral neurotoxicity in cancer patients who received treatments with certain classes of chemotherapeutics. Doing so, he specialized in the characterisation of neurological phenotypes in multiple animal models, at the behavioural, electrophysiological and histological level. After his PhD, Lawrence pursued his passion for translational science and joined CoBioRes to bring innovative research one step closer to the patient.
