Dr Annika van Hummel, Postdoctoral Researcher, Macquarie University.
Annika is a Research Fellow in the Dementia Research Centre at Macquarie University. She graduated with a Bachelor of Biomedical Engineering (Hons 1), then completed her PhD at The University of Sydney. Since joining the Ittner group in 2014, Annika van Hummel has developed an interest in the use of genetically modified mice as models of neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Motor Neuron Disease, Frontotemporal Dementia, Alzheimer's Disease), both to better understand the underlying cellular mechanisms and to test novel treatment options.
