Personal profile

Academic background

Suzanne Timmermans (Geleen, 1993) received her M.Sc. in molecular life sciences from Radboud University in 2016. During her studies she worked on human mesenchymal stem cell culture in 3D hydrogels in the Physical Organic Chemistry group of Prof. Wilhelm Huck (Radboud University), in situ activatable cell-penetrating peptides in the Bio-Organic Chemistry group of Prof. Jan van Hest (Radboud University) and on a glycosyltransferase with expanded sugar substrate specificity in the group of Prof. Carolyn Bertozzi (Stanford University). As of March 2017, she is a Ph.D. candidate working on protein nanocage-based artificial organelles in the group of Prof. Jan van Hest.


Protein-based artificial organelles are very promising tools for expansion of cellular function
