Anne van der Ham
Anne van der Ham was born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, on 17th of January in 1984. She studied Chemistry at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, with a specialisation in Science Communication. In November 2009, she received her master degree cum laude. In her master thesis she developed a pathway for controlled integration of polymers into the Cowpea Chlorotic Mottle Virus (CCMV) capsid, opening a new synthetic route for biohybrid materials based on viruses. This work was carried out in the Supramolecular and Physical Organic Chemistry of Prof. Dr. Roeland Nolte at the Radboud University.
Since November 2009, she is a Ph. D. candidate under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Jeroen Cornelissen in the Biomolecular Nanotechnology group at the University of Twente. The aim of her project is to use the CCMV capsid as a confined reaction space for polymerization and other types of reactions.
