Alliance Manager of the Rare Cancer Initiative of the Cancer Program's Dependency Map, here to help Broadies raise the scientific communication bar.
Anneke is the Alliance Manager of the Rare Cancer Initiative within the Broad’s Cancer Dependency Map. In her role, she serves as key liaison in collaborations between scientists, clinicians, foundations, funders, and patients.
Anneke completed her PhD in Medical Sciences at the University of Oxford, where she discovered that English weather is much better than everyone says. During both her PhD in England, and her Postdoc at the Broad Institute, she had the opportunity to look beyond the bench at the translational significance of scientific discoveries, and learnt how efficient scientific communication can contribute to the dissemination of scientific findings – to both peers and the public.
Along with her desire to contribute to the meaningful application of scientific findings, she is passionate about engaging in constructive conversations around scientific communication, career choices, as well as professional and personal development. In her free time, she loves the outdoors (preferably in good weather), and you might find her running, hiking (often equipped with her camera), or rowing on the Charles River.
