Postdoc in the Center for the Science of Therapeutics, here to help Broadies raise the scientific communication bar
Anneke is a postdoctoral associate in the Schreiber lab at the Center for the Science of Therapeutics (CSofT). Her research is focused on chromatin oncology targets and the use of small molecules as novel cancer therapies.
After completing her undergraduate studies of biology and business, Anneke moved to the UK to obtain her PhD in Medical Sciences at the University of Oxford, and discovered that English weather is much better than everyone says. During that time, she not only learnt to love chips (fries) with cheese and vinegar, but she also got to take a peek beyond the lab bench at the actual application of scientific discoveries. Anneke was very excited to get more involved in this area, and thus, while finishing her PhD, she started a small consulting business and advised various international customers on medical device development and regulation.
From the very beginning of her own scientific career, Anneke has mentored students and immensely enjoys brainstorming science, degree choices, and life with them. In her free time, she loves being outdoors (preferably in good weather) and you will find her running around, hiking (often equipped with her camera because she loves taking pictures), or rowing on the Charles in the very early mornings.
