Anniek den Hamer (1989) studied Biomedical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), receiving her Bachelor degree in 2011. During her master she performed an internship in the Protein Engineering group of Dr. Maarten Merkx, developing a homogenous assay using split-beta-lactamases for the detection of antibodies. In addition, she joined the group of Professor Matt Cooper, at the Institute of Molecular Bioscience of the University of Queensland in Brisbane (Australia), where she developed hybrid fluoro- magnetic nanoparticles for serotyping of Dengue fever. Anniek performed her graduation project in the Chemical Biology group of Professor Luc Brunsveld, where she characterized the interaction of 14-3-3 proteins with nuclear estrogen receptor alpha as a potential drug target for breast cancer. This project was in close collaboration with the Chemical Genomics Centre of the Max Planck Institute in Dortmund. Anniek received her master degree at the TU/e in 2013. She continued as a PhD candidate in the group of Professor Luc Brunsveld. Her project involves the development of a 14-3-3 protein scaffold for the application of small molecule controlled signaling platforms used in a synthetic signaling network.
