Spenkelink, Lisanne Dr.

NHMRC Emerging Leadership Fellow

  • NHMRC Emerging Leadership Fellow - School of Chemistry and Molecular Bioscience
  • NHMRC Emerging Leadership Fellow - Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health

Overview


Lisanne Spenkelink obtained her BSc in physics in the Netherlands and her joint PhD degree in biophysics in the Netherlands and Australia. She is currently an Associate Research Fellow at the University of Wollongong. Her research focuses on the development and use of single-molecule techniques to study the dynamic behaviour of proteins in complex biological systems, with a focus on DNA replication. In 2022 she was awarded an NHMRC emerging leadership grant to develop a novel single-molecule directed-evolution method.
