Annerieke received her BSc. degree in 2011 from the University of Alberta and continued her studies at the university in the department of cell biology, earning her PhD. in 2017. Her doctorate work focused on elucidating how co-chaperone proteins and post-translational modifications regulate Hsp90, a molecular chaperone that facilitates the activation of numerous proteins involved in oncogenesis.
The study of cell biology has deepened her appreciation and understanding of the world around us, particularly in how intricately beautiful and complex the fundamental unit of life is. Annerieke now acts as the molecular health biologist at King’s. Her main focus of research is the mechanism of Hsp90 chaperone function. She is eager to continue to share her passion for biology with her students.
