Carlijn Bouten is professor of "Cell-Matrix Interactions for Cardiovascular Regeneration' at the Department of Biomedical Engineering of the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). 

She was trained in functional anatomy and biomechanics, as well as exercise physiology, at the dept. Human Movement Sciences, VU Amsterdam (MSc 1991) and obtained her PhD degree in 1995 from the TU/e. She performed postdoctoral research at the Université Laval (Quebec), University of London, and TU/e. In 1998 she became assistant professor in Cellular Biomechanics in the department of Mechanical Engineering, TU/e.

In 2002 she was appointed associate professor of Tissue Engineering in the department of Biomedical Engineering, TU/e, where she obtained a personal professorship in 2010. Her current research focuses on cell-matrix interactions in cardiovascular tissues, with special emphasis on regulating growth, differentiation, adaptation and remodeling. She uses ‘living’ model systems at different length scales (cell, cell-matrix, engineered tissue, native tissue) to quantify these aspects, preferably in real-time. In 2002 she was awarded by the NWO-Aspasia program and in 2003 she received a NWO-Vici grant for her research on skeletal muscle and heart valve tissue engineering, respectively.
