  • Arwen received her Master’s degree in Bio-medical sciences from Leiden university, the Netherlands in 2012. Her Ph.D in Medicine was obtained at Karolinska Institutet, Sweden in 2017. During her Ph.D Arwen’s research focused on the development and prediction of graft-versus-host disease and long-term hematopoietic mixed chimerism post hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
