Human Frontier Science Program fellowship for Dr. Joanna Whittaker

21 March 2022

Dr. Joanna Whittaker has received a cross-disciplinary fellowship from the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP). With this grant she will come to Groningen to continue her research at the Groningen Biomolecular Sciences and Biotechnology Institute (GBB). Whittaker will join the research group of Prof. Giovanni Maglia and Dr. Katarzyna Tych for three years. She will focus on targeted protein degradation and apply electrophysiology to study the function of the proteasome.

Cross-disciplinary fellowships from the Human Frontier Science Program are designed for postdocs with backgrounds outside the life sciences (e.g., natural sciences, chemistry, mathematics, engineering, or computer science) who wish to advance in biology. They receive a three-year grant to conduct research in an outstanding laboratory of their choice in another country. Joanna Whittaker comes from Padua (Italy) to the Faculty of Science and Engineering in Groningen.
