The research of Anne Wentink is focused on understanding the role of chaperone mediated disaggregation of protein aggregates in the context of neurodegenerative disease.
Dr. Anne S Wentink (09-05-1990) studied Biochemistry at University College London (UCL) from 2007-2010. She obtained a BBSRC scholarship to pursue a PhD in the lab of Prof John Christodoulou at UCL (2010-2015). Here she used solution-state NMR spectroscopy to study the structure and dynamics of the ribosome associated bacterial chaperone Trigger Factor and its interaction with nascent polypeptide chains.
Her postdoctoral research with Prof Bernd Bukau at Heidelberg University (since 2015) on the molecular mechanism of amyloid fibre disaggregation by the human Hsp70 chaperone cumulated in two back-to-back publications in Nature in 2020. In January 2022, she started her own research group as assistant professor within the division of Macromolecular Biochemistry focused on understanding the role of chaperone mediated disaggregation of protein aggregates in the context of neurodegenerative disease.
