Personal profile

Academic background

Wiggert Altenburg (1992) received his Bachelor and Master degree in Biomedical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology in 2015 and 2017 respectively. During his master, he worked on synthetic signaling circuits on DNA origami scaffolds in the group of dr. ir. Tom de Greef and Prof. Maarten Merkx (Eindhoven, University of Technology) and on controlling in-vivo cargo loading of protein nanocompartments in the group of Prof. Pamela Silver (Harvard University). As of February 2018, he is a Ph.D. candidate in the group of Prof. Jan van Hest working on the integration of biological systems into protocells.
