Dr. Anne S. Meyer is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Bionanoscience at TU Delft in The Netherlands. Dr. Meyer received her Ph.D. in Biological Sciences at Stanford University (USA) in 2005. Before joining TU Delft, she was a post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA). She has run the TU Delft iGEM (International Genetically Engineered Machines) team for five years, and her team won the Grand Prize in 2015. Her research focuses on using quantitative techniques in the fields of biophysics, biochemistry, and microbiology to study structural dynamics, macromolecular interactions, and physiological responses of organisms to environmental stressors. She also uses tools of synthetic biology to engineer novel functions into microorganisms, with a particular focus on the production of improved biomaterials and the development of new pathways for inducing transcriptional responses.
