In 1998 she was board certified in the Netherlands in Pathology, and in 2001 in Immunology. From 1991 to 1994, she was Research Fellow of Fonds National de la Recherche Scientifique (Belgium) in the department of Immunology of Prof. M. Goldman, Université Libre de Bruxelles and in the departments Prof. B. Brenner and R. Cotran (Brigham and Women?s Hospital, Harvard University). Since 1998 Florquin is staff member of the Department of Pathology in het AMC. Her research is embedded in the Center for Immunology Amsterdam (CIA). She received several NWO-grants (Clinical Fellowship, ASPASIA and VIDI). In 2007 she was appointed Professor of Pathology in the University of Amsterdam. She is a member of the Scientific Board of the Dutch Kidney Foundation and of the NDT-Educational and Clinical Kidney Journal Editorial Boards.
