Research Interest:

My work focuses on minimally invasive surgery, flexible endoscopy, needle interventions, endovascular interventions. We are cooperating with surgeons of several (university) hospitals, e.g. Leiden University Medical Center, Erasmus Medical Center Rotterdam, Reinier de Graaf Gasthuis Delft, Academic Medical Center Amsterdam.  Our research projects are in the fields of designing novel medical instruments, medical haptics, training and simulation systems, and patient safety, with the focus on minimally invasive techniques. Recently she started a number of projects to develop affordable and high quality (minimally invasive) surgical instruments for low and middle income countries.

Short CV

Jenny Dankelman obtained her degree in Mathematics, with a specialisation in System and Control Engineering at the University of Groningen. Her PhD degree on the dynamics of the coronary circulation was obtained at the Man-Machine Systems Group, Delft University of Technology (DUT). This work was performed in close co-operation with the department of Medical Physics of the Academic Medical Centre Amsterdam. She continued her research at the Man-Machine Systems group and in 2001 she became professor in Minimally Invasive Technology.

In 2007 she became head of the Minimally Invasive Surgery and Interventional Techniques (MISIT) group. Between 2010 and 2014 she was head of the Department of BioMechanical Engineering of the Faculty of Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering (3mE) of the DUT. In 2013 she became Medical Delta professor.

In 2018 she received a Royal award and became Knight in the Order of the Netherlands Lion.

In 2019 she was elected as one of the most inspiring female leaders of the Netherlands (InspriringFifty), became member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), and received the Professor of Exellent award (Leermeesterprijs) from the Delft University of Technology.
