Research interests

Steven Bergink received his master in molecular biology at the university of Groningen. He obtained his PhD at the ErasmusMC in Rotterdam in the group of Jan Hoeijmakers. He continued with a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (Munich, Germany) in the group of Stefan Jentsch. During both his PhD and postdoctoral period he focused on the regulation of DNA repair mechanisms by posttranslational modifications of the ubiquitin family.

           Currently he is a group leader at the medical faculty in Groningen. His current research at the Department of Cell biology aims to investigate the intertwinement of DNA repair, protein quality control and neurodegeneration.
