Assistant Professor

Jenny van Asbeck- van der Wijst Ph.D.

Assistant Professor
Jenny van der Wijst 2017

Jenny van der Wijst works in the specialized area of electrophysiological analysis combined with the biochemistry of ion channels and cell signaling. Her research interest is focused on the molecular and cellular physiology of epithelial ion transport. She obtained her PhD degree in Medical Science in 2011 at the Radboud University Nijmegen. During her PhD at the department of Physiology, she studied the regulation and molecular mechanisms of transepithelial magnesium transport. Subsequently, she broadened her technical skills and knowledge on biochemistry by joining the specialized kinase-related lab of Prof. Alessi (MRC-PPU Dundee, Scotland) on an EMBO long-term fellowship. Following, she combined her biophysical and biochemical expertise on a NWO Veni-funded research project at the department of Physiology. Currently, she works as an assistant professor at the department of Physiology and as a Marie Curie fellow at the lab of Prof. Cheng (UCSF, USA) to expand her research towards the structure-function relationship of transient receptor potential (TRP) ion channels.
