Anton Scheurink appointed Professor of Neuroendocrinology

22 March 2011

Anton Scheurink will be appointed Professor of Neuroendocrinology at the Faculty of Science and Engineering (formerly known as the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences) on 1 April 2011 after having been Associate Professor since 2004.

Scheurink has been nominated several times for the Faculty Teaching Award and won it once, a tribute to both his teaching performance and his innovations in physiology and neuroendocrinology teaching. His research focuses on the neural arrangement of the body’s metabolism and the regulation of body weight, paying particular attention to the role of the brain in eating disorders such as Anorexia Nervosa and extreme obesity. His research is conducted within the framework of the BCN (Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences) research school.

A.J.W. Scheurink (1959) studied biology at the University of Groningen and gained his PhD (cum laude, 1989) at the Department of Animal Physiology of the same University. From 1989 to 1990 he worked as a postdoc at two universities in Washington, USA, after which he returned to Groningen, first as a postdoc and subsequently as a KNAW Fellow. From 1996 to 1999 he was University Lecturer at the Department of Neurobiology, project coordinator of the computer-controlled interactive teaching component of the biology degree programme and research coordinator of the Anorexia Center of the Karolinska Instituut in Stockholm, Sweden. From 1999 to 2004 he was University Lecturer at the Department of Neuroendocrinology and since 2004 he has been head of the department and Associate Professor.
