I am a first year graduate student in the lab of Prof. Wilhelm Huck at the Radboud University Nijmegen. I am working on a project to create an artificial cell. This involves implementing complex genetic networks in cell-free systems which are far from equilibrium. My project involves designing, quantifying, modeling such networks. I am a molecular biologist by training and have basic modeling skills. I am looking to expand my skill-set to include microscopy, microfluidics and a little bit of
I am a first year PhD student, working with Professor Robert Poole (University of Sheffield), Professor Jeff Green (University of Sheffield) and Dr Jamie Wood (University of York) using a systems biology approach to study respiration in Escherichia coli.

Work in my laboratory is focussed on microbial physiology - the study of how bacteria and other microorganisms work. Although rooted in the tradition of bacterial growth and intermediary metabolism, microbial physiology now embraces molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, and indeed any discipline that can shed light on bacterial function. Much of our experimental work is conducted with Escherichia coli, the pre-eminent ‘model’ organism with unrivalled ease of genetic and physiological
Martijn Bekker (1979) was born in Amstelveen (The Netherlands). He started his studies in biology in 1997 at the University of Amsterdam, and graduated in 2003 with specializations in molecular microbiology and in immunology. The internships during his undergraduate studies were carried out in the labs of Prof. dr. B. Oudega (VU, Amsterdam, The Netherlands) and Prof. dr. F. Heffron (OHSU, Portland, Oregon, USA).
He continued with his graduate studies in 2003 in the Laboratory for Molecular Microbial
